Lighthouse Card for a Man

Hello dear card making friends:

Usually, cards for Men are quite challenging ...
So here it is one for your inspiration...

I made it for a friend who lives near the ocean...so the "Lighthouse" die from Memory Box was perfect for the focal point on this card...

and since it is in California, what more appropriate than decorating it with some grape leaves, remembering all the vineyards and the coast line from this beautiful state...
and some "hardware"/ brads for the center of the cluster of leaves...

I hope it gives you some ideas...

Little marine Tags...

Hello my dear crafty friends:

I am back with some simple, fun and easy projects to make...some little "marine" tags...
all made with "Memory Box" dies and for the tag base made with "Elisabeth Craft Designs" die tags.

This first one uses the "shorebirds" die from Memory Box

this one uses the "Seagulls" die and the waves were taken from the "lighthouse"

with a snowy background and an ombré technique
(I used the splatter tool from "Ranger" with some white acrylic paint over an ombré background made with 3 shades of distress inks of blue)
