CCMC.....Stars & Stripes Forever
Today's patriotic themed card in my week long celebration is inspired by the challenge on Create with Connie & Mary. Of course their challenge fit my theme week perfectly, Fourth of July! I also used the color challenge from Stacey's Stamping Stage again.
I am not sure about this one, I don't do distressed well. I like clean and crisp. The base of the card is kraft, I mean Crumb Cake and I followed that up with a layer of real red. I embossed the real red with a star embossing folder, I then used my distressing tool all around the edges and then I just crumpled it all up. I then took a sponge with real red ink and sponged all over, this step is not really showing in the photo. I folded the corners and tore a few places on the edges.
The sentiment and the flag come from the Red, White & Blue jumbo wheel, I borrowed from a friend. She had bought this wheel and cut it all apart. I am soooo doing this myself. I stamped the flag image onto the crumb cake card stock and then distressed the edges. The flag was colored with my real red and night of navy marker. The sentiment is stamped with night of navy ink.
I added some vintage brads and some twill ribbon and a red button with a cotton thread bow.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
