Land of the Free
Today I am sharing yet another Clean and Simple (CAS) patriotic card using the retired Stampin’ Up! Land of the Free.
I incorporated the Splitcoaststampers CAS436 “Show Your Patriotism” Challenge and the AAA Cards #93 “Words Take Center Stage" Challenge. I know that the words on this flag image are not large and bold, but to me, they have “power” for sure!
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- they both have fabulous Design Teams as well as inspiration in their galleries.
To create this card:
1). Using Stampin’ Write Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler Markers, color directly onto the Land of the Free stamp and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Die cut the image with the MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX die and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock, trimming close to the edge.
2). Using the Big Shot™, emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Sizzix™ ©Ellison Star Scroll Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, trim once more before mounting onto the Whisper White card base.
3). Die cut a few stars using the MFT Stitched Star STAX from Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy cardstock, layer a few stars directly onto the card front, add the flag sentiment along with a few smaller stars with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
