CAS Vintage Sailor Boy


I got this digital image free from The Vintage Workshop and used it to make two super-duper quick cards recently.  I noticed that the waves were very similar to some of the papers from Cosmo Cricket’s Salt Air, so I pulled them out and went to work.  My first one was a thank you to my in-laws for our recent boat trip:


The second was for my BIL’s birthday:


Sometimes digital images don’t print out clearly, but this one was wonderful!  The colors are bright and saturated, and I just think this little vintage sailor is as cute as can be!  Both sentiments are from Cute & Curly.  Thanks for visiting today!

Wee Details:

  • Stamps:  Cute & Curly
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket
  • Ink:  Stazon Black
  • Acc:  Circle Punch, Black Brad



  1. What a wonderful print! Digital images are great for those quick cards!

  2. PERFECT matches! Not only the the Vintage print with the design paper, but the colors as well! They were made for each other. WAY TO GO!!

  3. Like both cards but the image made a really great thank you.

    I will say again-I love Cassidy's cute and pretty clothes! Cute photo.

  4. But WAIT!!! What's the URL to the digital image site???

    I print most of my decorative paper by searching free digital sites.

  5. Fabulous card LeAnne. I've never done anything digital. Hmmmm got me thinking again. Have a wonderful weekend :-)

  6. Both are so nice and quick. I'll be checking that Vintage Workshop! I can't get over how the papers matched so perfectly - amazing. Neat idea using your circle punch for the tag notch!

  7. GREAT card!

    Cassidy looks so cute! 'Specially now that those OTHER teeth are coming in! LOL

  8. Incredible cards! The image and the papers are perfect together. Hope you had a wonderful birthday. Hugs

  9. Wonderful card. I always look at the Cosmo Cricket paper in the stores and never seem to find anything that I like, but this is wonderful. The stores that I have access to are AC Moore and Michael's and I think that they carry different papers. Love the picture of your grandaughter.

  11. I just LOVE vintage images! The sailor boy was no exception. I appreciate the tip on the Vintage Workshop. Just got there today and added them to my favorites!!Thanks.
