I never make July 4th cards....does anyone really send them? But I thought I would send one to my sister, and even though she won't get it in time, I think she'll enjoy it nontheless! Today's challenge at SCS was to use corregated cardboard somewhere in your card. I had almost finished my card when I read the challenge, but I thought I could still incorporate that into it:
And here is a closeup of one of the little corregated hearts I made. I pulled apart the cardboard, cut it freehand into a heart shape and then ran my ink pads lightly over top. I added some PTI buttons sewn with some thread, and it was done. I stamped this image twice, once in Rose Red, then again in Night of Navy and cut out the starred section of the flag and glued it on top. This is a large card, almost 5x7"; the images are from "Hero" from Artistic Outpost and Background Basics: Text Style from PTI.
Okay, we have red and white (vanilla), but no blue...oh well, see the blue stars on my wallpaper!!! This card was made from some pieces I had been pushing around my table, leftover bits from a failure, but too good to throw away! The stamps are from Simon Says (they have hundreds of stamps!) but I don't know the name of the set. Here's the inside:
The same little flower is stamped all over the red circle, too! I needed a quick little thank you card and this fit the bill.
