With the kids out of school, Betty and her family spend many warm summer days on their sail boat, at the beach or country club pool. And nothing says summer fashion like nautical clothes. Betty's outfits always look picture perfect yet effortless in red, white and blue. Whether you are on sea or land, you can't go wrong with these retro looks!

As an avid crafter, Betty always encourages her kids to make their own gifts and cards. So, with Father's Day around the corner, you should do the same! All you need are a few supplies and an idea to get started. This vintage inspired card is perfect for any dad who loves boats or fishing. Steal this design or use it as inspiration for your own. This Sunday show dad you care with a gift handmade with love!
1 blank card and envelope
two different color papers (card stock or any think paper)
Sail Boat Stamp
Stamp Pad in Black
Instructions: Not that you necessarily need them, this card is so easy to make!
1. Cut a rectangle 1/4 of an inch smaller than your card on each side. Glue the cut paper to your blank card with the Glue Stick.
2. Cut out four anchors with the Martha Stewart Punch and glue them inside the cut rectangle. It is helpful to layout the cut anchors first to see how they will fit in the space before you glue.
3. Press the stamp onto the Stamp Pad, then press it onto your card on the left hand side. Make sure to give it lots of time to dry.
4. Write dad a cute note and make this Sunday his best Father's Day ever!
