Life Imitates Life

The other day Carol made this cool double fold gate card that she copied from Wendy who learned it from Dawn's tutorial or you can see a static version on Dawn's blog. Of course I had to jump in and check out all those links and the tutorial and make my own.
All those nautical themed cards I've been making lately have lead me to wanting to make a lighthouse card. I poked around in my stuff and found this really, really, really, really, really old lighthouse stamp set. Not only was it old, it was Never Before Used Stuff!* To go with it I found some really, really, really old double sided paper. In hindsight, the differences between the two sides is probably a little too subtle for this technique, but I'm happy with this card anyway.
This is an easy card to make so check out Carol's, Wendy's and Dawn's cards and try one yourself!

* In my defense, not that I really have one or need one, this stamp set was housed in a CD case and for the longest time those weren't in my craft room or by any of the crafting stuff (it was with the CDs).

The Fine Print: Stamps by The Angel Company, designer paper by Stampin' Up, and the technique, well now you know all about that!

The paper is subtle, but it's gorgeous. Love that color. Nice stamp, too, and an interesting technique that even I might be able to handle.
(I was sure this was going to be another image from your Club Stamp kit.)

You pack the most fun in a couple of sentence, PJ! You have just written the first episode of Stamping By Lamplight (dramatic music) where Susan learns from Lisa that Marleen told her that Donna ... love it!! And I love your lighthouse card in the pretty duel blue paper! It looks not that easy to me, but I trust you. And your defense stands. You may be seated. No one will convict you under the circumferance!! Hugs, Darnell
