I always struggle a little in coming up with cards with a masculine theme. I've had this lighthouse stamp for years, and use it a lot. I made this for a coworker's birthday, and expect it'll be a Father's Day card in a few weeks, too! The sketch is from the Splitcoast challenge SC330.

ImageStamp the lighthouse image on white paper, and trim it around the frame (the actual image goes outside the frame). Color with COPIC markers:
- Lighthouse: R35, R59, C3, C5, C7, W2
- Sky: BG70
- Water: BG70, BG72, BG75
- Grass: G29
- Sand: E30, E33
- Frame: E33
Cut and emboss the tag from white paper with the die cut machine, and sponge with caramel ink before removing the paper from the die. After removing the die cut, sponge some more ink around the edges of the die cut. Punch 3 holes in the tag, and add the brads.
Cut and emboss a long rectangle from red paper.
Mount the patterned paper at the bottom of the card, followed by a strip of ribbon to cover the edge of the paper. Add the red rectangle, followed by the image. Add the tag to the right of the image.
