Happy 4th of July! As Americans we celebrate our freedom with fireworks, cook outs and being with those we love! I hope you have a fun and safe 4th!
I thought I’d share a card I created for my Sincerely Yours, Card Class in June. The class was focused on the new In-Colors 2018-2020. I used the designer series paper pack on the cards.
When I was creating cards I was getting stumped but then saw how this Blueberry Bushel with the white polka dots and this Lovely Lipstick with the white strips looked a lot like the American flag. So I decided to play around with it until I created this!
I started with a Thick Whisper White card base. Then I decided to hunt my stamp collection for something fireworks like. I found this retired set called Seasons of Whimsy, it was an older hostess set from a holiday catalog. I try not to use retired items in my cards since you can purchase them if you really fell in love with it. This time I didn’t know what else to use and these were perfect!
So I used the sparkler from the set and stamped it onto a Whisper White layer with Pineapple Punch, which is another new In-Color!
I adhered that layer onto the card with liquid glue. Then I added the flag. The Lovely Lipstick is cut at 2 3/4″ by 4″. The Blueberry Bushel is cut to 1 1/2″ by 2″. I added this to the card also using liquid glue.
I then needed a sentiment to finish the card off. The sentiment is also from a retired set called Here’s to Cheers, also from an older holiday catalog. I used the “Here’s to a Sparkling Season… Cheers” sentiment because I thought it fit perfectly! I’m sorry nothing in my stamp collection seemed to fit as well.
I stamped it in Blueberry Bushel and then punched it with the 2″ circle punch. I added it to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional then added a rhinestone to the bottom of it.
Here’s the supply list of products I used to create this card. I hope you have the retired sets in your collection or come up with some other fun ways to use this flag!
