If you are overboard in love, try using this nautical Valentine’s Day printable this year!
On the last (or fourth) Monday of each month, a group of bloggers participate in a #MovieMondayChallenge, hosted by yours truly! We decide on a topic, genre, or specific movie to use for inspiration and everyone gets free reign to create something wonderful!

This month’s challenge was. . . . “Romance”! Everyone was allowed to choose their own favorite romantic film for this challenge. For myself, I chose a favorite – Overboard.
If you have never seen this 1987 romantic comedy, you are doing yourself a HUGE disservice!! Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are longtime loves and the fact that they were together in real life prior to making this film together makes their antics all the more realistic, hilarious, and tender.
A cruel but beautiful heiress mocks and cheats over a hired carpenter. When she gets amnesia after an accident, he decides to introduce her to regular life by convincing her they’re husband and wife.
As of 2015, they finally watched the movie together even! Check out Goldie’s comments!
My inspiration from this film was all about boats and gold. I mean, c’mon, GOLDIE HAWN. Plus, if you HAVE seen the movie, then you will likely recall the iconic gold glitter dress she wears at the end of the film. (No spoilers, I promise!) I couldn’t get that or the entire nautical element out of my head.
So I created a Nautical Valentine’s Day Card printable with a little touch of gold glitter.

I used my ever user-friendly Picmonkey site to create this card, and I had some help! Check out this awesome tutorial (that explains much better than I could) how to take any text you want and decorate it in glitter or anything else you fancy!
I love the nautical navy color against the glittery gold for this project! Whether you see this movie or not, you may love this look.
Once I’d printed my card, I used an old paper crafting tool long buried to crease and fold it. It’s a Martha Stewart Scoring Board, and it helps to aid in all SORTS of paper crafts! You can use it to score lines for folding, create envelopes, gift boxes, and more.
I’d nearly forgotten I owned this thing, since card making and paper crafting sort of fell to the wayside for me. The Craft Room Challenge had me digging things out and discovering they were still useful!!
Of course I had printer issues aplenty for this card. Printer out of ink, so I bought more. Then printer head cleaning. Then printer head cleaning again. Then my printer basically spit out its best version and I was stuck with it, it also decided to tell me it was slowly dying and I needed a new printer. GRRR.
Please see this movie if you haven’t already. It is HILARIOUS. And once you do, you’ll understand my design much better!!!
Now let’s see what everyone else was inspired to create for this month’s #MovieMondayChallenge!! If you’d like to join our Facebook group, you can request an invite here.
