July 4th

I actually got my act together this year and stamped a bunch of 4th of July cards to send to family. Over the next few days I’ll share some of them with you.

This card was created for a past SCS CAS challenge (cas72) which was a sketch. It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do. Once I decided all my 4th of July cards were not going to be 1-layer cards, this one came together pretty quick.

Next time I’ll use a light color ink for the stars in the background, and I’ll mat that layer with dark blue.

Happy 4th of July
All supplies Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Star Prints, Let Freedom Ring, Vintage Picnic;
Colors: Pure Poppy, Spring Rain, Enchanted Evening, white;

  1. Wow, the red card base looks awesome and sets off the other colors. Perfect 4th of July card!

  2. Super idea, Karen! I love your deconstructed flag!!! In fact, I may steal it . . . all in the name of patriotism, of course! ;->

  3. Oh, look at you being all clever with putting the sentiment strip across that panel! I personally like the dark stars on the light blue! And that polka dot star is placed just perfectly!

    Now I’m feeling like I should have been more on the ball with my Fourth of July cards-you certainly inspired me today!!
