~ Proud to Be an American ~
Good morning and thanks so much for stopping by! Today, I have a simple card to share with three of my favorite colors... red, white and blue! You may think I am a bit late showing this card on July 5th. However, I beg to differ! If you saw my home, you would know how much I love to decorate with those three colors. From bedding to outdoor bunting, you will see these colors in my home year round. I share this love of country with many people. I find in my travels that Americans are very proud of their country. In my opinion, it is a shame that we feel we must limit displays of that love to one or two times a year! I say shout it from the rooftops ALL YEAR long! So with that in mind, here is a fun card using a few of Our Daily Bread Designs latest releases.
and an oldie but a goodie...
and coordinating die
I used navy card stock for my base and added a white card stock mat. The final embossed layer (red card stock) showcases my stamped heart. I inked the top with dark blue ink, carefully using scotch tape to cover the line. I then removed the tape and inked the bottom with red. Once I loaded the stamp with ink, I lightly huffed on the entire stamp to warm the ink and stamped the image on white card stock. I used the coordinating die to cut out. I stamped the letters (U, S & A) in alternating colors as shown and used the Pennants die to cut them out. I added all three with baker's twine and voila! Very easy!
Hope you and yours had a wonderful 4th of July! God Bless my friend and God Bless America!
