I thought it might be fun to feature images from the Come Sail Away collection with some No. 9 cards so that you can see how quickly and easily they can come together! And today's giveaway includes a Come Sail Away kit with a Greetings to Go Side order. (To be included in the opportunity to win, simply leave a comment below before midnight tonight.) This batch of cards was designed to work specifically with the nifty text on the Come Sail Away Unmounted FontArt sheet.

CS® Grid Ruler as a mounting block for those nifty, long text strips on the FontArt sheet. Stamp onto the 2.25x7.75" panels. After that, it's simply a matter of choosing how to mix 'n match all of the paper colors, stamped panels, and anchoring strips.
Here are the six cards:
And a few of the details . . . it's so much fun to grab items from my stash of embellishments! Jewels, Dazzles, fibers, brads, etc. Just a little thing here 'n there makes a big difference.
Good luck on the giveaway!
