Happy Flag Day!


Happy Flag Day!  Today's card for Stamp Simply was inspired by those painted palette projects that you've seen all over Pinterest. This is the same paper that I used for my card last week, this time cut into strips and glued to a piece of white card stock.  The star is die cut from white card stock, inked with distress oxide ink, then sprinkled with water.  After stamping and heat-embossing the sentiment, everything was splattered with diluted gold ink.


You can see the embossing and the barn wood texture of the patterned paper a little better in this close-up.  I had planned to use some gold glitter-dot ribbon and blue faux canvas ribbon, but in the end decided that clean and simple was the way to go!


And here's the inside.  Again, clean and simple.  I love this stamp set!  And the nice thing is that there's still time to order it for patriotic cards for the 4th of July!  

So blessed to live in this great country and so very proud to be American.

Here are the other supplies that I used, all from Stamp Simply:
