Summer is here! A free lighthouse SVG

Hi, everyone!
Yesterday's post promised you that I was making something for summer, and something that had to do with the beach.......well, here it is!

This card uses my Lighthouse SVG file

 I have had this card in my head for months! I finally sat down and created the lighthouse svg, which is your freebie today! The file contains the lighthouse base, the top layer, the top of the lighthouse (the red paper on my card), the "light" center, and two "rails".  Note: My Cricut blade did not cut through my paper all the way for the light center, so I ended up using a 1/4" circle punch for my card this time. The light center cut is the same size, but my paper was too think for my blade, I guess!
The waves were cut using a free SVG from  I sized the layers to suit my card, ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Mesh folder, inked over the embossing and then added some SU Whisper White Craft Ink and Icicle Stickles to the edges. I made the water by cutting a DCWV Summer Glitter Mat Stack to fit my card, then I tore one edge. I inked the torn edge lightly with some SU Pacific Point ink, and then even lighter with the Whisper White Craft Ink. The seagulls in the sky are drawn on, first with a white gel pen, and then below the white with a black gel pen.
I added some Star Dust Stickles to the light in the lighthouse. The body of the lighthouse is two layers, and I ran the top white layer through my Cuttlebug with a Tim Holtz for Sizzix embossing folder called Brick. I lightly inked over the embossing with SU Pacific Point ink.
I tried to put some Whisper White Craft Ink lines on the glitter "water", and to do some inking with a sponge dauber - lesson learned today: the glitter paper doesn't allow the ink to dry. lol! I used my Stickles to create lines for "waves" in the water, after I wiped up my mess. :0)
That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by!
