VERY IMPORTANT TO DO THE STEPS IN ORDER!
Pick out the stitched triangle die that cuts out a triangle that is 2-1/4" long on all three sides from the Stitched Triangles Dies. Put it on top of the yellow and blue New Horizons Designer Paper square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so mostly yellow will be along the flat base of the triangle. Run through the machine. Leave the die out.
Put the stitched triangle die on top of one end of the blue New Horizons Designer Paper rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is as close to one edge as possible. Run through the machine. Put the die back on top of the other end of the designer paper as close to the edge as possible so the triangle is facing the other direction. Run through the machine. Keep the two triangle cut outs.
WITHOUT ADHERING, lay the three triangles on the large, horizontal white rectangle as shown leaving about 1/4" between the edges of the triangles.
Mount the small sentiment of choice from the Sailing Home Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Night Of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it just below the bottom of the blue triangle on the left side so the end of the sentiment is even with the right corner of the triangle.
Remove the triangles from the stamped white rectangle.
Insert the stamped white rectangle into the Bark 3D Embossing Folder. Use the line printed on the front flap of the folder to make sure it is lined up straight. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on the platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Adhere the dry embossed, stamped white rectangle to the front of the Night Of Navy card.
Now, adhere the triangle cut outs in place.
Mount the larger sailboat image from the Sailing Home Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Night Of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the remaining, smaller white rectangle.
Pick out the matching large sailboat die from the Smooth Sailing Dies. Put it on top of the stamped sailboat image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the image is centered in the die. Run through the machine.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sailboat cut out to the front of the card as shown so it overlaps part of the center and right triangles.
