High Tide - Reverse Lenten Challenge Card

Crafters -

For the next several weeks (during Lent), I will be showcasing the card designs we did at my Reverse Lenten Challenge Class on February 15th.

Here's the basics:
  • We made 40 notecards using the Whisper White and Crumb Cake Notecards and Envelopes
  • On March 1st, 2017, Ash Wednesday, we began giving or sending cards to other (there are 40 days of Lent, NOT INCLUDING Sundays)
  • Can be anyone - child's teacher, co-worker, grocery clerk, bank teller, mom in front of you who has her hands full! Anyone! You get to choose!

For this week's card, I chose to showcase the High Tide card. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set AND (spoiler alert!), it made it into the NEW 2017-2018 Catalog too! It is a GREAT value for just $26 (photopolymer stamps) with all the sayings, the lighthouse, birds, water, sand, etc. My set is getting quite stained because I have used it so much! All supplies used, and the links to purchase them, are listed at the end of this blog posting.

Everyone's cards were slightly different. There ARE six different papers, double-sided, to the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and each one is just as beautiful as the next! AND, since the paper is retiring (we knew that was gonna happen since Mint Macaron was part of the colors in this paper!), AND ON SALE, it makes a PERFECT paper for this card. You may have even received a FREE package as a Sale-A-Bration benefit those last few weeks of March!

Did you notice that the lighthouse doesn't extend beyond the stitching on the Whisper White Square? Just put a post-it note on the stitched line and then stamp. Makes a VERY easy technique! And we only stamped one image of the lighthouse, not the 2-step stamping.

Add a strip of Mint Macaron (is anyone else going to miss this color? I know I am!) and a strip of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper - SO glad this is staying too! and viola! you have a card that anyone will LOVE!
