Thomas Kinkade Lighthouse

Thomas Kinkade stamp and the Verse stamp just have to be my favorite stamps for making a card for a man and both can be found at Cornish Heritage Farms
I started with a white base card by stamping the grid (guide lines by PTI) directly onto the card and stamped the compass (Father Knows Best PTI) on top of the grid.
I then stamped out the lighthouse and verse onto white card stock and cut the lighthouse into 3 I mounted all off the pieces onto black card stock and attached them to the card using foam pads evenly spacing the lighthouse image.
I punched out 2 holes in the left bottom corner of the card and threaded through the ribbon.
All stamping was done in black onyx versafine ink.
Card finished size is A5

Gorgeous Jak
How did you get the shading on the card (sorry to be thick). From what I can see the card shades friom blue to white - did you do that or was the card already shaded?

Lovely, Jak. I would never have thought to cut up a stamped image to use on a card. The effect is fantastic.

Love Joan :o)
