Worthwhile Adventures ~

Hi Everyone! Mary here with a quick and easy card using the newly released Landscape Silhouettes and dkDesign Across the Miles. The multiple images between the two sets give endless options to the cards you can create. It would be appropriate to say I haven't even begun to delve into the possibilities!

I chose my card stock base to create the nautical look I wanted to achieve. The designer paper from SU is cut down to fit the base leaving some base colour showing. Next, I stamped the lighthouse silhouette directly onto the coordinating designer paper using versafine black. I trimmed it to fit the base and distressed the edges and layered it onto matching card stock. Lay this aside. I stamped the arrows and the mariners wheel to continue the theme on the card base.  Lastly, I stamped the quote above the lighthouse silhouette. I wrapped bakers twine on one end of the focal piece and adhered it onto the prepared base.

Enjoy your day! 
~ Mary
