It had been such a crazy & busy couple of days I completely forgot it was Monday!!! That means I didn’t get a chance to share with you my lighthouse. I really like this stamp set, HIGH TIDE! It reminds me of the trip we took this summer to Connecticut & our weekend stay at Cape Cod.
The two-step stamping technique was used to create the shading on the lighthouse. I really enjoy the depth that you get when you use the a 2-Step stamping technique. And what makes it even better is the Stampin’ Piercing Mat.
The great thing about this card and the greeting inside is that it can be used for anything!!! Birthdays, congratulations, thinking of you or just because… the possibilities are endless! And just because I posted this on ‘Masculine Monday’, doesn’t mean that it would only have to be used for the man in your life. I choose colors that were deep and rich such as Not Quite Navy, Real Red, Emerald Envy, Daffodil Delight and for just a touch of subtleness, Crumb Cake.
Do you see the tone on tone stamping with the birds in the water on the Not Quite Navy cardstock? That effect is very subtle but it gives depth to the card!
There are a few steps, and it looks very complicated…but it is very easy! I put this card together in about 10 minutes!!! Aanndddd HERE IT IS….THE FINISHED CARD INSIDE & OUT.
