I thought I would start off this week, kind of where I left off last week. Last Monday, I shared with a Faux Step Card that was made “vertical” (You can see that post here: Lighthouse Point Faux Step Card. Today’s card is made using the same stamp set, but the card is made “horizontal”. I did a few trial and error cards figuring out the measurements, so I’ve done all the hard work for you!
Its the same concept, except the card is turned to be horizontal. And as you can see, I also used the same Lighthouse Point Stamp Set and Lighthouse Dies.
The paper I used is one of the FREE sets of Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog called Rings of Love. Most of the paper is more Fall or Autumn themed, except this one piece that I used for my card. The Real Red and Pool Party checked design looked more “summer like” to me and made a great background for my lighthouse.
Want to know where I got the inspiration for the design on the front? Check out page 100 in the Annual Catalog. There is an example of a card using this stamp set with a similar stamped design.
I used one of the large “splotch” stamps from the set and stamped twice using Pool Party ink. I did not want for the image to be dark, I wanted more of a “cloudy sky” look, so I stamped off first after inking the stamp and then stamped on the piece of Basic White Cardstock. I used another of the stamps with a “Straight edge” and Coastal Cabana Ink to make the “Sea”. The lighthouse is stamped in Crumb Cake and Real Red ink and then die cut using the Lighthouse Dies. I placed the lighthouse where I wanted it on the card and then used Daffodil Delight ink to stamp a lightbeam, then I added the lighthouse using dimemensional, but not before I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the stamped Basic White piece. The sentiment was also stamped in Real Red ink and adhered with dimensionals.
If you would like to make this card, these are the supplies you need:
- Lighthouse Point Stamp Set & Lighthouse Dies
- Basic White Thick Cardstock
- Cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ – Score on the LONG side at 1″, 2″ and 5 1/4″
- Cut 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ – Score on the LONG side at 4 1/4″
- Basic White Cardstock – Cut 3″ x 5 1/4″, Cut 3 1/4″ x 4″, a scrap for a 1 1/2″ circle and a scrap for stamping the lighthouse
- Rings of Love Designer Series Paper – Cut 5 1/4″ x 4″, On the SHORT side, cut off 1/4″, then cut off 3/4″. This will leave you with three pieces (5 1/4″ x 1/4″, 5 1/4″ x 3/4″ and 5 1/4″ x 3″ If your paper has a pattern that is directional, then the pieces will align on the card front.
- Ink: Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Crumb Cake
- Stampin’ Blends Marker – Daffodil Delight (Optional)
- Linen Thread
- Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems
The little 5 1/4″ x 1/4″ strip of Rings of Love Designer Series Paper? It goes on the inside of your card!
