Lighthouse Themed Cards

Both these cards measure 5ins x 5ins and are made using a white linen effect hand cut blank.

Dianne in Florida sent me a packet of 3D stickers containing, amongst others, the embellishments I have used on these cards. I love the seagulls and would buy them by the sack load if they sold them on their own, they would just add the finishing touch to so many scenic cards.

I’ve also used some text print from my Papermania A5 Bookprint paper pack. I’ve coloured the central panel in with a Promaker pen. As I am not too keen on stamping this paper is a dream come true for me, I get the printed effect I love but without all the fiddle fart with ink etc.!

Always difficult to know what to do for a male card and this is perfect.

Really like these cards and yes they would be great 'mancards' Haven't got these dies cuts but do have lighthouse, compass and script writing stamps so thank you once again for the inspiration.
