Last of the Patriotic Cards

I now have twenty two 4th of July/Patriotic cards to send to our troops overseas! Here are the last two cards I made:
First card is from sketch #155 from Unscripted Sketches:
This is really a fun and easy sketch to use. Click here and check out how their design team used the sketch:
Here is my card:
 The background is embossed with the star and dotted swiss Cuttlebug embossing folders. I stamped the star image over Hero Arts Envelope Pattern. Both were inked with Fired Brick distress ink.
 I wrapped the gold thread under the stamped star and tied it. I used a gold star gemstone on the small blue square.
The sentiment was stamped with Watermark VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
And here is the last of my patriotic cards:
 The red cardstock is embossed with the star embossing folder and the blue cardstock is embossed with the swiss dot folder. The three small stars were punched out of leftover white cardstock that had been stamped with the Envelope Pattern from the card above. I inked the edges with Fired Brick distress ink.
 I wrapped the cardstock with red and white bakers twine and tied a bow. I stamped the two sentiments on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used a gold star gemstone on the 4th of July sentiment.
Taking a break from cards for a day or two and will have something else to share with you all tomorrow.

  4. I not only loved poking around on your blog and admiring all your American patriotic cards, I loved seeing all the different sketch blots that I didn't know about.
    Cheers, Karen

  5. What fun patriotic cards! Love the embossed star background!

  6. I love the look of the stars - with the envelope liner, I thought it was fabric at first! Such fun patriotic cards!
