H andmade thinking of you or encouragement card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Dapper Denim Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Smoky Slate Cardstock
- 3-3/4" x 5" from Dapper Denim Cardstock
- 3" x 4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 2" square from Smoky Slate Cardstock
Place the Dapper Denim rectangle into the Seaside Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Place some Grid Paper on top of the Stampin' Pierce Mat. The Mat will help insure that you get a clean, crisp stamped image with the High Tide Photopolymer Set and the Grid Paper will protect the Mat from ink.
Mount the large dune with the cut out for the base of the lighthouse image from the High Tide Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Smoky Slate Ink Pad. Stamp it on the bottom of the white rectangle so the cut out for the lighthouse is centered.
Mount the vertically striped lighthouse image from the High Tide Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Dapper Denim Ink Pad. Stamp it on the white rectangle so that the base of the lighthouse fits into the notch in the dune.
Mount the ray of light image from the High Tide Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Crushed Curry Ink Pad. Stamp it on the white rectangle so that the beam is coming out of the right side of the lighthouse with the narrow end of the beam being centered in the top of lighthouse.
Pick out the oval framelit from the Layering Ovals Framelits that cuts out an oval that is 2-5/8" wide. Place the stamped white rectangle on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the oval framelit on top so the lighthouse is centered. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the lighthouse oval to the dry embossed Dapper Denim rectangle so it is centered side to side and about 1/2" from the top.
Cut a 10" piece of Crushed Curry Solid Baker's Twine.
Fold the twine in half. Lay the folded twine across the cardstock pieces so it covers the bottom of the lighthouse. Flip the cardstock over and fold the ends of the twine over. Adhere the ends of the twine in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of the cardstock. Adhere it to the Smoky Slate rectangle and then to the front of the Dapper Denim card.
Mount the "In High Tide or Low Tide..." sentiment from the High Tide Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Dapper Denim Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Smoky Slate square.
Pick out the circle framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits that cuts out a circle that is 1-5/8" diameter. Place the stamped Smoky Slate square on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the circle framelit on top so the sentiment is centered. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment circle to the front of the card so it is on the left of the lighthouse oval and is centered over the twine.
Cut a 16" piece of Crushed Curry Solid Baker's Twine.
Fold the twine in half. Tie a small bow in the center of the doubled twine. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the card front so it is on top of the twine already on the card on the right side of the sentiment circle.
Carefully peel up a Crushed Curry circle from a sheet of Glitter Enamel Dots making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the card front so it is centered in the top of the lighthouse.
