This week I have been featuring the High Tide stamp set. Earlier in the week I shared how I used it to make stamped cork coasters. Today, I want to show you how to use it to make an encouragement card.
We all go through rough times in life. Sometimes it can be very comforting just to know that someone is thinking about you. A handmade card can be the perfect way to do that!
I made this card for a family member who is going through a rough time right now. I just wanted to let her know that I care and was praying for her.
Supplies used to create this Lighthouse card:
- Crumb Cake Cardstock: 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ (Score at 4-1/4″ to make an A2 card)
- Blue patterned paper: 5-1/4″ X 4″
- Crumb Cake: 5″ X 3-3/4″ (tear on all edges)
- Using Smoky Slate ink, stamp the detailed lighthouse stamp once on a piece of scrap paper. Then without re-inking, stamp again on your torn Crumb Cake layer.
- Using Island Indigo ink, stamp the top lighthouse stamp once on a piece of scrap paper. Then without re-inking, stamp again lining up with the first lighthouse image you stamped. Since this is a photopolymer stamp that you can see through, it is pretty easy to do this.
- Using Crushed Curry ink, stamp the lighthouse beam once on a piece of scrap paper. Then without re-inking, stamp again lining up with the top of the lighthouse. Repeat the process for the beam on the other side.
- Using Basic Black ink, stamp the sentiment over top of the lighthouse image.
- Use a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink to sponge the torn edges of this layer.
- Adhere the patterned paper to the card base.
- Cut a 4″ piece of burlap ribbon, angling the ends. Use glue dots to adhere it to the middle of the card.
- Using Stampin Dimensionals, adhere the stamped layer to your card.
