For the most recent Papertrey Pal's challenge, Ingrid from the Papertrey Pals challenged us to use red, white and blue colors as well as stars in our projects. Such a perfect challenge with 4th of July coming up soon!
Here is the card I made for the challenge, Let Freedom Ring.
One of my favorite images to use in cardmaking are stars, so naturally I love making 4th of July cards! Not to mention, it is our country's most important holiday too.
The background stars and sentiment were stamped with PTI Let Freedom Ring. The main star image was stamped with PTI Text Boxed. I just received the set from an online seller, and this is my first time trying it out. It is so versatile and I can tell already that it will be used a lot!
Here's a close up.
I was very happy to find a blue button with stripes in it in my stash! And notice the white corrugated paper? I dug up my Fiskars corrugator tool to make the background texture. It's a fun way to add a little extra dimension. The poppy ink was kind of distressed a little to add interest.
Here's the card once more.
I had a lot of fun making this card and it's got me excited for the 4th, which is one of my favorite holidays. Do you have any plans yet for the 4th? We are still trying to work out the final plans, but my mom is going to see Lee Greenwood in concert. She's a huge fan. ;) Have a sunny day!
ETA: Thanks so much to the CARDS blog, for featuring this card in their 4th of July challenge!
