Patriotic 2-for-1

Today's Stamp Simply project is a 2-for-1 patriotic card set.  There is no shortage of heroes these days, military and otherwise, and they come in all shapes and sizes, so these will be off in the mail ASAP.  

Life is certainly always full of challenges, but 2020 has had more than its share of them, so this sentiment from Romans seemed to fit the occasion!  The card front is a trio of patriotic papers glued atop a panel of card stock, then die cut with the largest of the Spellbinders Stars 5 dies.  The negative space was then filled with a shimmery gold star of the same size, and a slightly smaller star, stamped with the sentiment and popped up on dimensional adhesives.

Here's the positive die cut from the card above, used on the second card front.  There's lots of white space with that pretty gold shimmer card stock peeking from underneath. 

It's always nice to have one card give a head start for another!   

The insides of each card are very similar, with a border of gold, a sentiment stamped in shimmery gold ink, and a single gold die cut star.

That uncluttered, simple layout leaves lots of room for a signature and some words of encouragement.

  1. Gorgeous cards. It's always great when you can get two for one cards. The shimmery gold card stock is perfect for the star and mat. Thanks for the inspiration.
