Flag of Allegiance

>> Tuesday, June 15, 2010


Congratulations to Stephanie (comment #48)
the lucky winner of yesterday's
Stamp a Day Giveaway!
She has won Flag of Allegiance (L449), which is the fantastic flag featured on the card I am sharing with you today.


To tie in with this patriotic image, which has the Pledge of Allegiance replacing the stripes of the flag, I wanted to use 'patriotic colors'. Because I thought white may be too stark for the background I went with red, white and khaki.

The Flag of Allegiance Flag (L449) was stamped in sepia ink, just above center, and then I stamped a thin border at the bottom using Interlocking Star Background (H819). The great thing about all of DRS's Interlocking Borders is that even if you mistakenly overlap when creating the background, it is no big deal because the elements already overlap on the stamp.


As a final touch I stamped In God We Trust (B282) on the twill that is tied around the layered, embossed, red and blue strip.

Would you like a chance to win a fabulous DRS Designs stamp like Stephanie?!?! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, then check back tomorrow to see if you won! Even if you don't win today, you can comment the rest of the month for even more chances!

Twill is one of my FAV's to add to a card or project! When I looked at the flag on the card, I love how the flag is stamped on... with the twill added below it on the card... to me it almost gives the impression that, that is what old glory would feel like if you could touch a real flag... I JUST LOVE IT!!! Thanks for sharing with us!!! Kimberly
