Seize the Birthday and Tuesday Morning Sketches #224

My card is for two different challenges, the first being Seize the Birthday where I needed to use texture. Usually I will pull out one of my many.. many embossing folders but today reached for a paper pack I brought this summer and had not used yet.
The paper is so nice it has raised elements,  embossed bits, glittered bits and over all fun with all the texture.
The second challenge is the current Tuesday Morning Sketches, this layout worked great for this card.
I heat embossed the lighthouse in blue twice and fussy cut out parts and popped them up for 3D detail. I used foam tape for the anchor, the compass and the little boat as well.  I added a heat embossed sentiment and some twine. I even added a little yellow glitter pen to the windows.
Supplies: Natural white and blue card stock, Designer Paper - Best Creation Inc ,Inspired by Stamping - Ahoy Matey, MTF-World Traveler die cut, misc punches, twine,


  1. Wow Sis,

    What a totally cool card. I love all the nautical touches. I mean the lighthouse on its own is eye-catching but all the little elements like the sailboat, anchor, steering wheel are totally CUTE - but the bakers twine is ... super fun!
