Yesterday was the birthday of a new but special friend, because Imtiaz is my son Adam’s father-in-law. He is a wonderful, happy man, who truly loves his family. I wanted to make him a card and wasn’t sure exactly what he would like, but Adam and Farah agreed that he would like the lighthouse from High Tide. The colors are from the TGIF color challenge this week. I have been following their challenges for a while and want to start participating with them.

It’s All in the Details

  • I wanted to keep this masculine card pretty clean and simple. The So Saffron was a very good choice for the card base because it keeps the card feeling light and airy like the ocean.
  • Whisper White cardstock was cut to 3.5″ x 4.75″ and stamped from bottom to top LOL. I added crumb cake to the colors to make the sand and beach grass.
  • After stamping the beach scene and sentiment, I layered it onto Calypso Coral cardstock. Then, that was layered onto another layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • The Finishing Touch was a little piece of Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon and Bermuda Bay Enamel Shapes.
  • Inside: The stamp from Birthday Blast was stamped in Bermuda Bay and layered onto Bermuda Bay cardstock, then Calypso Coral Enamel Shapes were placed both sides of HAPPY.
