Nautical card – Birdhouses through the seasons

Hi! Today I am back sharing a nautical card using the summer set from my “Birdhouses through the seasons” Spellbinders collection. If you want to check out the full reveal of the collection you can check this post.

For my nautical card I used the “Build A Summer Birdhouse” set.

The set includes a birdhouse in a shape of a lighthouse but it doesn’t always have to be used as it was intended. Here is another approach to make the most out of it where you can’t really tell that this was designed as a birdhouse.

When I create nautical cards I always like to use red, blue and white as my color combination. Add to that a touch of gold and some texture and you have a winner!

The sentiment is from my Tweet Sentiments stamp set. I heat embossed it in gold that matched the goldern touches on the lighthouse.

    Love the addition of burlap. It really adds to the summer theme of the card. I really like how the lighthouse could be a birdhouse — or not!! Congratulations again, Vicky, and thanks for the video!

    This certainly looks like a lighthouse rather than a birdhouse! Great job, as usual….. Love the addition of the burlap.
