High Tide birthday card

Today’s card is a masculine birthday card with very few layers, so that it’s good and flat for posting. The stamps do all the work in providing depth and perspective to the image.

The card base is an A6 portrait of Sahara Sand, matted with Night of Navy. On a Whisper White card front layer the large sand splotch from High Tide was stamped in Sahara Sand, once the right way up and again upside down to fill more of the area. The solid lighthouse was stamped in Real Red and then the lighthouse details stamped in Basic Gray ink over the top. After masking the edges of the lighthouse the waves were added in Marina Mist and Pool Party inks, turning the stamp to avoid repeated patterns. Grasses were added in Old Olive ink and birds in flight in Basic Gray ink. The wading birds were stamped in Early Espresso. A sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous was stamped in Night of Navy before adding the layer direct to the card front.

On the Whisper White insert, more sentiments from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set were stamped in Night of Navy ink. The small sand spot and the wading birds from High Tide were stamped in Sahara Sand and Early Espresso inks respectively.

High Tide is a great set for creating masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by.
