Anchor's Aweigh Collection: Little Boy Card Trio by Courtney

You know when there is a collection that you just can't stop playing with? The new Under the Sea and Anchors Aweigh collections have been EXACTLY that for me. Courtney Lee here from Court's Crafts with a trio of cards. 

I have found that as a card maker, usually using the big patterns that are "meant" to be seen as an entire 12x12 page can be challenging - like this map paper. But I just HAD to get it into my design. I loved it! 

I found this scene on one of the 12x12 sheets - it's the one that separates out into 6x4 pieces. 

It was already so darling that I really just added enamel elements to the card like the middle bubble, fish, and some shells. 

I also added some sand using some liquid glue and a happy birthday sentiment using doodlebug rub-ons. 

Next up is a card that was pretty simple, but I just had to highlight one of the adorable doodle-pops in this collection.

I seriously had to keep this doodle-pop away from my 3 year old. She was determined to have it! She helped me pick out the patterns on the card and now is very excited to send the turtle to someone. Win!

Look tat the awesome depth on that doodle-pop! :) Also, the sentiment came from the "this and that" stickers. Easy-peasy.

Lastly is a card that I made using our own Mendi's cut file! She made this cut file available for download in a card a while ago. Here was here original post where you can find the download too!

I actually grabbed the clouds from this rainbow. It almost killed me to cut them off but they were too cute!

I made a fun little scene in the center. I added some enamel shapes like the star at the top and the matte sprinkle at the top. 

And I hid a little enamel fish behind the sail of the boat. :)

Here it is again. There is a lot of dimension and it's just fun to look at! 

I hope you had a great time with me today on the blog. We cannot wait to see what you make with this collection! We would love to see what you make with this collection. Share it with us on our Facebook page!
