Father's Day Card, Sailboat Stamp

Hi, my friend Cami came over and we made 8 father's day cards.  She wanted a sailboat design.
The left two cards use Inkadinkado sailboat stamp $8. Right card uses Stampin' Up! sailboat from Uncharted Territory set $20 (retiring as of May 31, 2012). Quote stamp is also from Uncharted Territory.  It reads, "Life is [an] uncharted territory. It reveals its story one moment at a time. Leo F. Buscaglia."  I liked this quote and bought this set for this quote. The "Happy Father's Day" word stamp is from eBay $4.50, Double D Rubber Stamps. The stamp fits comfortably inside a 1 inch circle punch. This is layered on a Designer Label punch (Stampin' Up! retired) cut piece in ruby red or cocoa.

I used the Top Note die to cut cardstock in white, bashful blue, and pacific point (can cut all 3 layers at once).  Next I stamped the sailboat on the white cut piece. Then I layered the white on top of the pacific blue cut piece, carefully lining up edges, and cut both sheets together on my paper cutter. Then cut off the top and bottom of just the white piece above and below the sailboat (see photos).  Then assemble all 3 layers (bashful blue at the bottom, pacific point next, then white with sailboat on top).  Attach the scallop trim cut from ruby red cardstock.  I used stamp-a-ma-jig to fit the quote below the sailboat after assembly.

I need to make 5 more cards to break even on all stamps used ($32.50).  Supply cost per card is about $1 and uses 1.5 sheets of cardstock. Benefit in excess of supply cost is $2.50/cd x 8 = $20.

All Supplies & Stamps/Dies used:
Stamps: Inkadinkado sailboat $8, Stampin' Up! Uncharted Territory $20, Double D Rubber Stamps "Happy Father's Day" $4.50.
Dies/Punches: Stampin' Up! Top Note die, 1 inch circle punch, Decorative Label punch, and ScallopTrim Border punch.
Cardstock: white, bashful blue, pacific point, ruby red (scalloped trim), cocoa (card base two left), old olive (card base right), and vanilla (inside writing sheet).
Markers: Bermuda bay on sail (left card) and water; pacific point on boat; bashful blue on sail, water, and cloud (using chalk); old olive on sail (right card); ruby red on flag and sail trim; and yellow on sun. Also used white gel pen to highlight boat and sail.
Other Tools:
Big-Shot machine, stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner, black inkpad, tape, pop-up tape, and paper cutter.
