I absolutely love all things patriotic and even have Americana décor in our home, so I decided to pull out the Old Glory Bundle, America 6x6 paper (Echo Park) and other supplies from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Storeto create a layered patriotic card for the Stamp Simply blog post today.
As many of you already know, I enjoy participating with online challenges and used the Splitcoaststampers SC830 Sketch for the layout of this card (another sketch done for my goal of doing them all, lol!).
I also incorporated the Watercooler Wednesday #314 “Dawn’s All AboutOccasions” Challenge as well as the Make My Monday #146 “Checks or Plaid” Challenge (I used checks, but some may call them plaid) and the Word Art Wednesday#487-#488 “Anything Goes: Challenge into the design.
If you have not had time to check out the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Emboss a piece of navy cardstock with the Darice Wire Fence embossing folder, trim and adhere to a white card front.
Layer the pieces of checked pieces of America designer paper onto navy cardstock, trim, and mount onto the right-hand end of the card front (per the sketch).
Die cut a large circle from white cardstock and emboss with the Wire Fence embossingfolder. Adhere to the card front (lining up with the embossing on the navy background).
De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the map image from the Old Glory stamp set with black pigment ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, color with water-based markers and die cut with the coordinating die from Patriotic Stars and Stripes.
Mount onto the card front with dimensional foam (or chipboard).
Prepare another piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, ink the sentiment from Old Glory with pigment black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Color the “Nation” part of the sentiment with a red water-based marker and die cut the sentiment with the Fishtail Sentiments Banner dies.
Adhere the sentiment to the card front using dimensional foam (or chipboard).
Die cut the layered stars from navy, red and white cardstock, and mount directly to the card front.
Add silver rhinestones to the center of the stars and a few around the sentiment and embossed circle.
Mount the entire panel to a white card base and add a patriotic twine bow to finish off the card.
