Today I am sharing a card I made for my brother-in-law for his birthday. He is a keen sailor and loves the ocean so I made a special card for him using a combination of Heartfelt Creations Sea Breeze and Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers dies. The Heartfelt Creations Ornate Window Cling stamp and coordinating die set is one I use a lot and here I have created an ornate window frame looking out onto a seascape with a light house and finished it with dogwood flowers and a cute bird.
I have made a side folding 5″ x 7″ base card out of white cardstock. I then layered gold and light green paper on the front.
I stamped the light house image from the Heartfelt Creations Sea Breeze Harbour cling stamp set on X-Press It card and coloured it with Copic markers. I stamped a plain image of Magic Masking Paper and trimmed it to cover the image I had coloured. I then ink blended some sky in the background using the Waffle Flower Cloud Stencil and ink blended the sea with pale yellow and blue inks. I then die cut it out with the plain window die from the Heartfelt Creations Ornate Window Frame cling stamp set and adhered it to the front of the card.
I then stamped the window frame image twice from the Heartfelt Creations Ornate Window Frame Cling stamp on gold cardstock and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I die cut one full frame including the window panes and the window, and one ornate heading from these images. I glued the window to some acetate and then trimmed to fit the window. I added the outside decorative frame to the front of the coloured image with foam tape and then added the window inside the frame.
I die cut the bird from the Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers – Spring Birds Honey Cuts using grey, black and white colours to represent seagulls and added it to the top right of the window frame. I then die cut the dogwood flowers from the Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers – Dogwood Honey Cuts and assembled them and added them to the bottom left of the window frame.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Mini Sentiments Stamp set in Jet Black ink on white cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die. This was added to the window frame as shown.
