The Tide Will Turn

This trimmed gate-fold card is created for the anything-goes challenge at Joan's Gardens this week,--a card for someone special in your life (focus maybe on men, boys, masculine). For this card I used a Close to my Heart Stampset called Perfect Day, and embossed black ink following a SplitCoastStampers tutorial by Jen Shultz called Distress Marker Coloring.  This card is created on watercolor paper and uses Tim Holtz Distress Markers collection available at Joan's Gardens (so is the black embossing powder).  I used Versafine -fine detail archival ink by Tsukineko to stamp the images, and the design was inspired by a similar Lighthouse stampset that Joan carries by Try Fold (Art Impressions).  Inside the first fold is a Fancy Tags stamped "ticket" (CL02080) from a  Just Right Cling Set available at Joans. The other sentiment reads: "Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.  (Harriet Beecher Stowe).


  1. Great card Priss. Love the gatefold and the scene is beautiful.

  2. Love the fancy gate fold and the neat scene. Love how it layers. Do you have a pattern or did you just make up your own design for the folded cuts?
