Set Sail

There’s something nostalgic about Lighthouses. Probably because they’ve stood tall and proud through the worst weather and they’re a constant through centuries of change. The Sailing Home Stamp Set and coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies made this card really easy to make. I love it when papercraft therapy is easy!
