You float my boat Card

I LOVE THE BEACH!!  Summer is here and I am ready to play.  Keeping with the summer theme, my husband’s birthday is next week and I plan on making his day special.  Bob does so much for our family and deserves a really special day!  
Boat Card
The card sentiment was altered  from “Of all the ships I ever sailed, your “Friendship” brought me to the safest harbor.  Everyone should have someone who gives them safe harbor, I am lucky enough to be married to mine.
The paper I used is Mat Stacks by Die Cuts.  This particular stack, Classic Prints and Cardstock, is available at  JoAnn’s.  The saying, Have a boat load of fun!,  was sketched with a Silhouette sketch pen and backed with coordinating cardstock.   After removing the beach brad stems, I attached them to the card with mini dots.
Ship Wheel Tools

These are the tools I used: 
Mini Glue Dots, 8 eyelet backs, tweezers and Silhouette’s Pick Me Up Pen (best tool ever!)
FYI: Choose any stamp or image for the insert.



Ship Wheel Assembly
Hint:  Start with 4 eyelet backs and place one evenly on top, bottom and sides.  This allows you to evenly space the remaining 4 eyelets. 
Ship Wheel
Use Foam Squares to raise the picture. 
Assemble and you are done!
Have a great week!
