     Today I would like to enter a card into the Cardz 4 Guyz #88 challenge for this week, which is embossing.  It can be dry or heated. 

     My card uses a more vintage stamp of a lighthouse which I have had for years.  It is made by Stampendous from 1997.  Phew!  It depicts the Cape Hatteras Light in NC.  I embossed it with white detail powder, colored with Distress Inks, and cut and layered with classic oval dies from Spellbinders.  My designer paper is from Momenta.  I added Memory Box/ Poppy seagull die cuts and a twine bow to complete my card.

     Please stop back later for more creations I plan on posting.  Make it a good Tuesday!

Oh, I just got these stamps and had no idea what to do with them. Such a great idea to emboss and layer with map page. I need to just go ahead and make about 5 of these to have on hand for the occasional man card. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
