Hi and welcome back for day three of our Sneak Peaks for My Creative Time. I hope you have gotten your eye full of cuteness so far! Some amazing projects have been posted. I've seen lots I like, that's for sure! 
Here's what I have for you for today. Since cards are my fave thing to make, that's what I have again for today.

How cute are these nautical elements?! I LOVE them all...perfect for summer and I also have friends and family that boat and sail, so these are perfect for me! I love these anchors and wanted to just showcase them alone.

I wanted them to look like thick chipboard so I cut at least six of each, might be more, I don't remember. Then I glued them all together so they became nice and thick. I added with foam squares as you can see underneath. Brushed with Wink of Stella, doesn't show a whole but it's there!

Love these! Also love the texture of American Crafts card stock. I like how the background stamp really emphasizes that texture. You wouldn't get that on smooth cardstock.

I rubbed a bit of charcoal ink on the anchors to "grunge" them up a bit. After all, they can really look dirty sometimes! Tied on a bit of twine and added the sentiment. I layered in on the red and blue then used foam squares to add it to the card.

So, there you have it. Really simple and easy card. Here's what you'll need to make this one.

Anchors & Heart Dies ~ New Release
Stripey Background Stamp ~ New Release
