God bless America

Hello friends, Giovana here today, bringing you a very American card. When I saw these banners I knew I needed them for my 4th of July cards, this is one of a set I am making. Super easy and mail friendly.

Here are the details:
  • Start cutting a piece of watercolor paper (here size 3.75" x 5"), add a little bit of Ultramarine Blue Color Burst and then mist the paper to release the colors.
  •  On a piece of watercolor paper, stamp the banner from "Pennant Set #4" in red and blue ink.
  •  After your blue watercolor piece has dried, cut a small piece of vellum and stitch it to the panel.
  •  Fussy cut the banners and add blue twine to connect them together. Stamp the "God bless America Pennant" sentiment on a piece of red cardstock, add thin gold adhesive tape and add it to card with foam adhesive. Add the panel to a A2 cad base.

Here is the card standing up. Very simple and elegant.

Hope you like it and give it a try. Remember you can buy these stamps using my code TJ10Giovana for a 10% off of you purchase!!

Have a fantastic day!!

What a lovely card. Although I'm Canadian, I am in love with American flag/banner "things." You did an awesome job describing your steps. TFS.

How creative!!! Love that stitched vellum piece, it gives such an alluring look to the bg. Great card, Giovana.
