A Few More Patriotic Cards

I made two more patriotic cards today I want to share. I used the photo corner punch on Real Red cs to offset the white stars and blue background on the flag. It adds just a touch of color so the flag stands out on the Brilliant Blue cs background. I used dimensional's on the flag to give it some depth. For the first time I used the Hero Arts Alphabet set that was given to me for Christmas. I really like the font and size of the letters, it's kind of playful. I also used dimensional's on the USA sentiment.

For this second card I used the weathered background stamp with black ink on Real Red cs. The top note is Brilliant Blue cs and I placed it vertically on the card. I used VersaMark on the star stamp from the Hero Arts Alphabet Letters set (a second set of letters given to me for Christmas) on Brilliant Blue cs. I Attached red and white ribbon around the top note, adhering it with silver brads. I attached the two patriotic sentiment stamps to the top note using dimensional's.

I really like the weathered stamp as a background and have other patriotic cards I want to use it for. Don't know if I'll get to it in the next few days, at some point I need to stop making cards and organize and price them for the craft booth in Coarsegold on Saturday.

This all has been very fun and I look forward to posting cards on a more regular basis. I think I found my crafting groove :o)


  1. I really like that flag stamp you used. I've been trying to find a "large" one that has a wavy look to it.
    These turned out really great!

  2. I got this one from and it's 3 3/4" x 1 3/4".

    Here is one that is 3" x 3 1/2" so it's a little larger.

    I like the wavy flag too :o)
