Red, White and Blue!

>> Monday, July 2, 2018

Since this Wednesday is the 4th of July I thought I'd share some cards I created for the USA's Independence Day.

This first one is super simple. I started with the blue CS, stamped the As a Nation greeting with VersaMark ink and embossed it with detailed white EP. Next I used some Gina Marie rectangle dies to cut out the blue panel as well as a white one and a red one. These are glued together and attached to the white card base. To finish it off I added a large white star button with some blue and red baker's twine. I really like the look of these rectangle dies.

The Star Wreath was stamped with VersaMark ink onto white CS and heat embossed with detailed white EP. Once it cooled I sponged  some TH Distress Oxide inks onto the CS and splattered some water drops. The God Bless America greeting was stamped onto white CS in two stages, die cut and attached to the card. A glittery red star button and white baker's twine complete this one.

On this card, I started with white CS and masked everything off except one corner. In that corner I stamped the Interlocking stars background image with VersaMark and heat embossed with detailed white EP. I moved the mask around and did the same stamping and embossing in the opposite corner. With the mask still in place I sponged on some TH Distress Oxide ink over the stars. Next I rearranged the mask and stamped part of the Open Plaid background image with Memento Ladybug ink. Moved the mask and stamped again. The Stars and Stripes greeting was stamped with the same red ink, die cut and popped up on the panel with foam adhesive. I really like how this one came out.

Happy Fourth of July!

These red, white and blue cards are so patriotic and festive! I love the framing on the first one, it's just incredibly beautiful! The background on the second looks like a beautiful sky, and the way you used the sentiment is totally cool...And the stars and stripes background on the last card is total perfection! Amazing post today!
