Happy July friends! Over the next few days I'll be sharing a couple cards that are patriotic/hero inspired cards in a red, white and blue color theme. With a few simple modifications any of these cards could be used for 4th of July, Veteran's or Memorial Day, or to celebrate heroes in the fields of firefighting and law enforcement.
*All supplies are linked at the end of this post for you convenience.
This A2 sized card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Slimline Stars Background Die from Whimsy Stamps, I die cut two sheets of cardstock, one in red and the other in blue. I then took all the tiny cut out stars in varying sizes from the die and adhered them to a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of white cardstock. Using a liquid adhesive (Lineco glue) I adhered red stars on the top of the cardstock and blue stars on the bottom.
I cut a piece of vellum cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 3 1/2" inches and I adhere it to the center of the card with vellum adhesive. I die cut the letters "USA" using the Bold ABC letter dies from Whimsy Stamp in gold glitter cardstock. I also die cut the same letters three times from white cardstock in order to stack them (in lieu of foam adhesive). I adhered the letters to the center of the vellum with liquid adhesive. Lastly, I stamped the "celebrate" sentiment in blue ink on white cardstock, notched both edges and adhered it to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
