Land of the Free

 Hi Friends!

As I mentioned in previous posts, I love all things patriotic and created another card in honor of Memorial Day using the Stamp Simply Patriotic Bundle Trio along with Craft Consortium Grunge Dark Tones- 6x6 Paper Pad , twine and other items from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store

I love the all of the different fonts in both of the stamp sets- Old Glory and Patriotic Sentiments and the coordinating die set- Patriotic Stars and Stripes has several stars and it cuts out the US flap map perfectly!

I used a modified version of the Splitcoaststampers SC849 Sketch for the layout and am also linking to the Word Art Wednesday #489-#490 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Emboss a piece of white cardstock and a piece of red designer paper from the Craft Consortium Grunge Dark Tones 6 x 6 Paper Pad with the Sizzix 3D Texture Fades A6 Embossing Folder- Lumber. Trim the panels to 4” x 5 ¼” and cut both on a diagonal.

Mount to a piece of navy cardstock and sew along the edges using a zigzag stitch with white thread.

Using Kraft Baker’s Twine, knot the ends of three strands, mount onto the card front and wrap the ends behind the panel.

Mount the entire panel onto a white card base.

Using Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamp the flag map image from Old Glory and the sentiment from Patriotic Sentiments onto white cardstock (both available individually as well as in the Patriotic Trio Bundle).

Heat set the ink with a heat tool and color the images using watercolor pencils.

Once you are satisfied with the coloring, die cut the map image using the coordinated die from the Patriotic Stars and Stripes (Old Glory) dies and the sentiment using the Fishtail Sentiments Banner Dies.  FYI- I also cut two additional maps and fishtail banners from white cardstock to adhere behind each of the stamped images to add strength to the images.

Mount the sentiment and map onto the card front using dimensional foam (or chipboard) and finish off the card with a few silver rhinestones.
