JUN14VSNF Celebrate! A CAS Patriotic Color Combo :-)
I wanted to continue to participate with the Splitcoaststampers’ Virtual Stamping Night (VSN)- Summer Vacation and this card is created for the JUN14VSNF “Wish on a Star” Challenge along with the CC480 “RealWhite Night” Patriotic Colors and the CTS79 CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge.
I hope you have had a chance to visit the challenge sites- again, great designs and inspiration from all!
I definitely used Real Red (although the photo looks more like the retired Poppy Parade- I find it very difficult to photograph reds- lol!! )
To create this Clean and Simple (CAS) card:
Cut the strips of Real Red Designer Series Paper (DSP) approx. 1” wide and various lengths (mine are approx. 3 ¾” and 3 ¼” long). Mount onto Night of Navy cardstock.
Adhere a piece of Whisper White cardstock to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, trim and mount onto the Real Red card base.
Add the various strips of DSP per the sketch onto the front of the card.
Stamp the star from Simply Stars (retired set) onto Whisper White cardstock using Night of Navy and Real Red Classic Ink.
Punch out a star from Night of Navy cardstock using the retired Star Punch, punch out the Night of Navy stamped star using a non-SU! star punch and the Real Red stamped star using the star from Merry Minis Punch pack- layer and adhere the three stars together.
Stamp the sentiment from Feeling Sentimental using Night of Navy Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.
Mount the sentiment and the layered star to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the Rhinestones to finish off the card.
