Hello everyone! I’m back with another card for the Celebrate the Occasion Challenge! This week, the requirement was to make a project celebrating Veteran’s Day.
For my card, I did something that I haven’t done in a while - used patterned paper from a store AND my Expression. I’m still getting used to my Imagine, so that’s why I like to use it most of the time. Anyway, here’s my card:
My card measures 5” x 5” and the base is Kraft from the Paper Company. The navy blue mat is, 4.75” x 4.74,” and the red mat is, 4.5” x 4.5”. Both are open stock from Hobby Lobby. I used my Sukura gel pen to do some faux stitching around the card base and the red mat.
The die cut stars are from Plantin Schoolbook. I used the Roly Poly key. I do not remember the size of the yellow stars as I cannot seem to find my notebook, but the light blue star is 2.25.” I stamped, “Thanks!,” with VersaMark and heat embossed it with Zing embossing powder in pewter from American Crafts. I used Microsoft Word to type, “for all you do,” and I trimmed it and used my Fiskars square punch to make a banner.
Both of my pattern papers are Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby. I used the same navy and red cardstock to mat the I Love USA paper. And to finish off the card, I took a button from my stash, tied a knot through it with white embroidery floss and used a Zot to adhere it to the card.
That’s my card for today. I thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed day!
