A Nautical Birthday Storybook Card!

Hello Friends!

This is the last of the Storybooks, until I get my DSP I ordered,

to make 10 Storybooks for my Family!

Today’s Storybook, is for a Birthday!


Here is the booklet!


The Cover

(the lighthouse was masked to stamp the water)

Inside front cover and Page 1


I had to mask the sailboats to stamp the water!


Pages 2 & 3


I popped up the anchor with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the

Night of Navy and Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine!


Page 4 and inside back cover

100_6569With a 1.25″ Circle Punch I punched out a circle and used it on the card

to make the sun! I used brushes to color in the circle with Mango Melody ink!

I used several stamp sets for the booklet!



I followed Sam Hammond’s measurements exactly! (the US version) the previous 2 booklets, were modified, I was playing around with them for placement and measurements…this booklet is true to the original measurements!
