It’s Seaside Summers inspiration this week and I concentrated on the anchor from the image above for my card topper.

Modern Male Card with Smooth Sailing Die Background for Paper Craft Crew Challenge from Mitosu Crafts

Smooth Sailing Die Background

The simple striped background was achieved using the straight rope die from the set. I marked both side to guide the die placements then ran through a die cutting machine 5 times.
