I couldn’t let the 4th of July go by without a Patriotic card. I made this for the Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS. The challenge was to use your scoring tool as part of an embellishment on your card. I used my bone folder and Fiskars cutter to score this card every 1/2″. The center was masked off with a 2″ post it note. I used the scoring blade to line up where I wanted to score and then used my bone folder so the score line would be wider. That was not an easy task.
After the Whisper White layer was all scored I stamped the large star from In the Stars in Not Quite Navy using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement perfect. I then added the two smaller stars in Real Red that were cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I added a Vintage brad and some paper piercing. To break up the white I used some Real Red striped grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment is from Fundamental Phrases and is punched out with the Word Window punch and layered on a Large Oval punch. I added more vintage brads and set this up on dimensionals as well.
I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!
P.S. Happy Belated Canada day to all of my Canadian friends!
