Lights the way.... (FWF - Blog hop)

I have another card to share with you today made using stamps from the Adventures in Happiness Unity Stamp set available from Make the day special. I have made 3 different cards now using a selection of stamps from this set and each one is so different. Is is lovely to have so much versatility in one set of stamps.


To make the card, I cut some stripey paper to fit my base card, stamped my sentiment then sewed around the edge of the paper before wrapping it with string and sticking it to my base card.
I cut a rectangle of textured blue card, matted it on to green spotty card and added a strip of patterned pale blue card which I had cut with edging scissors. I sewed along the edge with my machine and then added a piece of green card on the top also cut and sewn. I stamped the lighthouse in place on the image panel and then once more on to cream card. I sewed around the edge of the image panel with a zig-zag stitch then coloured my image and inked with distress inks before cutting out and adding to the scene with foams pads.
I added a button to the right of the image, set an eyelet and then finished off with a couple of gems.
All papers except the textured card are from DCWV.
I really enjoyed making this card and building the little seaside scene, I really want to go for a walk by the sea now!
I hope you have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend.
