Lighthouse 03873
For my all die cut card, I die cut two lighthouse, one in caribbean, one white…one orange sunflower, and two Hello’s, one white, one orange. The white, orange and caribbean layers were die cut w/ the matting basics dies and I also used an IO grid border die on the larger white layer. The grid is 3 long rows so I had to cut it 3 times to go across this layer. I only used the petal part of the sunflower die and put it behind the top of the lighthouse. Since some of the orange petals showed through, I added the white cut outs from the white lighthouse version to cover it. The two hello’s were stacked offset on top of each other and an orange button w/ some twine finished everything.

Please be sure to stop and comment on all the DT blogs so you’ll be eligible to win!

    What a marvelous way to use the sunflower die. I really need to retrain myself to look at things from a different viewpoint. Your colors pop on the paper!!
