Uncharted Territory | Freshly Made Sketches #258

Today I needed to make a masculine Birthday card .....  I don't know about you, but I find masculine cards a bit on the tricky side ..... anyway I looked through my stamps and decided on using a lighthouse image for my card.

I came across 2 lighthouse images in my collection (what are the odds?). One from a current Stampin' Up! set called From Land to Sea and another from a lovely retired (and highly sought after set) called Uncharted Territory.

Since I couldn't decided which one to use I ended up making some cards using both sets. The cards I created using Uncharted Territory are below and if you would like to check out the cards made using From Land to Sea click here.

My card layout was inspired by this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #258.

I chose the colours that I wanted to use, but then couldn't decide which colour I wanted to use where, so I just made 4 of the same card alternating my colours. So I have a few extra cards now :)

Here is what I created:

I am really happy with how all my cards turned out. Not sure which one is my favourite though.

**I have used some retired textured cardstock in Real Red & Night of Navy for one of the layers and the flag strip (just to try and start using up my large collection of cardstock), however the smooth cardstock would work just as well if you don't happen to have any textured cardstock :)
