Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!  Lori here today with this card I created with the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Lighthouse die.

For my A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took the Exclusive Lighthouse die and cut it out several times with the different color papers.  I took a piece of patterned paper and added the white Lighthouse to the paper.  I then took the red, gray, yellow and dark gray pieces and cut them apart from the die and inlaid them to build my Lighthouse.  I then added the Lighthouse to the patterned paper.  I took the sentiment and some black ink and stamped that on the top left corner of the paper.  I took the compass and some black ink and stamped that stamp onto the top right hand side of the paper.  I took a water stencil and some Texture Paste transparent gloss and rubbed that over the stencil so it would look like waves splashing onto the Lighthouse, but it doesn't show up that well in the photograph.  I then mounted this onto some peacock blue paper and added the whole thing to the white card base.  I took, some white & black bakers twine and wrapped that around the card and tied on the anchor charm.  I love lighthouses, don't you??

Be sure to stop back to the blog often for more inspiration on using these wonderful dies!!
