High Tide

Here’s a card I did for my Control Freaks swap last month!  I actually sat in the hospital and worked on these while waiting for my dad to get out of surgery.  It was nice having a project to concentrate on instead of thinking about it…as it took over 5 hours!  But, I’m very grateful he is finally home and doing good.



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic Black cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • At the bottom of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Very Vanilla cardstock, the ground was stamped with Delightful Dijon ink.
  • The lighthouse was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on top and the light was stamped with Delightful Dijon Ink.
  • Along the right side, a 1 x 5-1/4 piece of Urban Underground Designer Paper was adhered and Basic Black Baker’s Twine was wrapped around twice and adhered in the back to cover the seam.  It was adhered to the front of the base card.
  • The greeting was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink towards the top.
  • A couple grass images were stamped with Delightful Dijon on the ground image.


Overall, this was a pretty CAS design, but my mom loves lighthouses and I felt this was also a masculine friendly set, so I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of it!  Hope you are inspired!
