Today's card is a little out of character for me, but I was "kind of" challenged to give it a try. I'm glad I did...I had a lot of fun making it and like how it turned out. :) I've never done a patriotic card before and wondered who I would give it to if I did. Well, we have a lady from our church who makes cards for everyone on their birthday (that's a lot of cards!), and I thought why not make it for her when I found out her birthday is July 4. Oh, I almost forgot...my idea for this came from The Friday Mashup. Thanks for the little push, Kasey! ;)
I couldn't decide which picture I liked better,
so I just put them both on. :)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
Stamp Set: Afterthoughts (retired hostess set)
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Real Red & Whisper White
Classic Stampin Pad: Real Red
Punches: Decorative Label & Boho Blossoms
Jewels: Basic Pearls
I cut seven real red strips and six whisper white strips 5 1/2" x 5/16" for the stripes. I trimmed the edge with a paper cutter after I had all the pieces on for a smooth finish. Not sure what size I made the blue...I was making it at two in the morning! ;) I just know I made it big enough to fit the twelve flowers!
