Lighthouse


Hi everyone,

Today I have a tutorial on how to create the card above using products from Elizabeth Craft Designs. For my project today I used the Lighthouse and Shells from Joset Designs along with the Fitted and Stitched Ovals and Card Stand Easel from Els van de Burgt Studio.

When I was looking through the new Through the Lens Patterned Cardstock packs, this piece from the Stone series reminded me of waves crashing up against the sand/rocks ... if you look very closely you might see it too :) .

Here is how I created my card:

1. The Base of my card: 
  • Counting from the small centre die, die cut the fourth die from the Stitched Ovals die set using designer cardstock from the Through the Lens Stone 6 x 6 Patterned Cardstock.
  • Counting from the small centre die, die cut the fifth die from the Fitted Ovals die set using Rust Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Counting from the small centre die, die cut the fifth die from the Stitched Ovals die set using Time for Teal Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Die cut the largest die from the Fitted Ovals die set, using White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Layer all pieces together as per photo above and set aside.




2. Using the Lighthouse die, die cut the following:

  • (1) Solid Lighthouse from White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Detail Lighthouse from Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Detail Lighthouse from Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Detail Lighthouse from Time for Teal Soft Finish Lighthouse
  • (1) Detail Lighthouse from White Soft Finish Cardstock
(Note for easier assembly apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the back of all the cardstock pieces BEFORE die cutting, except for the Solid Lighthouse.)

  • Remove the black outline only from the black die cut lighthouse and adhere this to the solid white lighthouse.
  • Referring to the photo above, remove the roof and red lighthouse wall panels from the red lighthouse and adhere them in the appropriate places.
  • Referring to the photo above, remove the base of the lighthouse & top section of lighthouse from the teal lighthouse and adhere them in the appropriate places.
  • Referring to the photo above, remove the remaining lighthouse wall panels from the white lighthouse and adhere them in the appropriate places.
  • Remove all the window pieces from the white lighthouse, color with a copic marker and adhere into place.
  • Attach lighthouse to oval panel using foam tape.
3. Using the Small Shells die set, die cut three of the solid and outline shells from White Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the back. 
  • Adhere the outline shell to the appropriate solid shell.
  • Use ink and a blender tool to apply color to the shells.
  • Use foam tape to adhere shells around the base of lighthouse.
4. Using the Sun and Circle from the Rainbow Sky die set, die cut both pieces from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. 
  • Add color to edge of each piece using a copic marker. 
  • Adhere sun to oval panel using foam tape.


5. Die cut the Card Stand/Easel die from Rust Soft Finish Cardstock. Fold stand in half and use to sit oval panel on.
