Hello, my crafty friends! This weekend Operation Write Home is celebrating America's 234th Birthday with an Independence Day Blog Tour over on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog! To join in the fun simply create any Birthday themed card then head on over to the OWH Stars and Stamps blog to enter your card. While you are there don't forget to check out all the activity on the new forum and the OWH facebook page. There are lots of fun games and prizes going on throughout the weekend!!!
This is one of the cards I made in honor of America's 234th Birthday! The image, Patriotic Audrey, is a digital image sponsored by The Stamping Boutique for last week's OWH Stars and Stamps Midweek Challenge. I'm a little slow in getting my card made for the midweek challenge as always.
My card base is as a half sheet of Night Of Navy cardstock folded in half. The rest of the card was created on a 4 x 5/14 piece of Cranberry Crisp cardstock and attached to the card base using mounting tape. On the Cranberry Crisp I layered a slightly smaller piece of American Stars patterned paper then a 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 strip of Cranberry Crisp. I wrapped 3/8" White Grosgrain Ribbon around the Cranberry Crisp and tied the ends down on the back side. The two 1 x 1 1/2 tan strips are DCWV cardstock.
The image was printed on PTI White using my Epson Photo Printer and colored in using copic markers. I layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Night Of Navy cardstock before attaching to the card base using mounting tape. To embellish the card I punched two stars from the DCWV cardstock using the Star Punch and added a small white star brad in the center before attaching to the card base with glue dots. I also made a bow with the 3/8" White Grosgrain Ribbon and attached it above the image also using glue dots.
I hope you enjoy the long holiday weekend, whatever you end up doing! Hopefully the weekend involves time with those you love and lots of stamping!!! Thanks for stopping by!
