Sailing Home Bundle: A Lighthouse and Two Yachts

This is a birthday card for my wonderful husband who I love to bits!  He really is my true north as well as my anchor in life.  He's always supportive and always there for me.  Right now he's supporting me through cancer diagnosis and treatment and I don't know how I would cope without his positivity and love.

It's just a shame that he gets seasick and doesn't like sailing!

A masculine birthday card featuring elements from the Sailing Home Bundle and Lakeside die set

The base card is one of the new In-Colours called Seaside Spray.  On top of the white layer there is a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock cut out with one of the Stitched Rectangle dies.  This was a leftover piece that was knocking around on my table.

I added some more Seaside Spray cut out with one of the dies in the Lakeside die set.  All the other nautical elements are from the Sailing Home Bundle.  The yachts were stamped with Stazon onto Seaside Spray cardstock and then coloured with Real Red and Whisper White Craft Ink.  The lighthouse and compass were stamped onto white card.

I stamped the birds with Whisper White Craft ink and the used a very small brush and some more of the white ink to add touches of highlight.

I cut the greeting out with dies in the Lakeside set using this method to extend the length a little.  I also used my guillotine to trim a tiny little bit from the top and bottom of the Blueberry Bushel label.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
