Happy Memorial Day stampers!!
Today, I'm sharing a card I created in remembrance and honor of our America's heroes. I used the retiring Thank You Die as my focal image, as it says it all on a day like today. It's not always an easy task for me, but I was able to create a nice, clean and simple layout that would fit more of the casual stamper category.
With the help of a couple of Sponge Daubers to create a simulated American flag, I sponged on some Night of Navy and Real Red ink in a swirling motion to a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I die cut the Thank You from the sponged piece, plus, die cut two more Thank You's from regular Whisper White cardstock.
I glued all three Thank You die layers to each making sure to stack them with the sponged layer on top. This technique adds dimension and the look of white chipboard. I die cut a couple different sizes of Stitched Stars from Vellum cardstock and set in place on a Whisper White cardstock layer that was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. I'm super sad the Whisper White 5/8" Flax Ribbon is on the retirement list...I use that stuff A LOT! My favorite part is to separate the long strands and use them to add a bit of rustic feel to my creations.
A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels adorn the final step to bring all of the elements together on this day of remembrance. God bless the Red, White and Blue! Thank you to all those that risked their life for me to live life freely. I'm sooo-so thankful; you will never be forgotten!
