Let freedom ring!
I love red, white and blue! And I got a brand new stamp set from Technique Tuesday on Monday that I decided to use for this card.
So, how did I make this one? I started with a navy blue A2 card base. The red star paper was cut 4 x 5-1/4 to leave a border. Then the fun began. I cut two flourishes from the Die-namics Fancy flourish die. After playing around with how to arrange them, I traced off the center line with pencil onto the red star paper, then cut on the line and glued the sheet to the card base. I trimmed the flourishes where they overlapped and attached them along the curved line of the red paper.
Next I cut stars with the Sweet and Sassy star dies and stamped the images from Technique Tuesday's My Hero set on the diecuts. They're attached with dimensionals. The sentiment is also from the My Hero set and is heat embossed.
This card is very mailable! No extra postage charges.
I guess that about covers it... Happy 4th!
