Seas the Day – Clean and Simple Challenge #685

I am hosting this week’s Clean and Simple Challenge and we’re commemorating the 110th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic with boats or nautical cards.  I had this cute Cat Ships Captain digi from Craftin Desert Divas waiting on my to do list.  Craftin Desert Divas closed in 2019 and I bought a ton of stamps and digis.  Two and a half years later, I’m still trying to get around to using them all.  To keep this card CAS, I just printed the digi kind of small and masked it to sponge a bit of Broken China sky behind him.

The sentiment is created using Amastery Hand font duo that I downloaded from  Sometimes I get a little stumped as to how to finish off my CAS cards.  I didn’t want it to just be a one layer card, but should I matte it on colored paper on a white card base?  Just die cut and put on a colored card base?  I can never decided.  That’s when the store bought printed card bases the I’ve picked up from The Christmas Tree Shop come in handy.  I found two card bases that I liked with the cat image.  I was pretty excited about the star background for my card inspired by The Titanic which was operated by the White Star Line.  But I really like the way the gingham looks.  The color coordinates so well with the cat, don’t you think?  Which one do you like better?

As always, I’m happy to share my computer generated sentiment.  If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
