Good Morning! Today's Twisted Tuesday challenge is in remembrance of 911, Patriot Day. The challenge this week is to create a sympathy or thinking of you card/project in honor of Patriot Day, a day in the US when we remember those that died on 9/11/01. There is no crafty twist on the challenge this week.
I used a retired Stampin' Up! stamp called 'God Bless America'. I cut the flag stamp apart and I made it so that I could use this stamp easier. The stripes portion of the stamp and the heart portion of the stamp are cut apart so all I needed to do was to ink up and stamp. I stamped the image and then I decided to add my ribbon along the left side. I stamped and punched out my sympathy sentiment and I tied it on the ribbon. The flag image layer was sponged all along the edges and it is popped up using dimensionals. Below my flag image layer, I added a piece of white card stock that was punched using my scallop border punch.
The wording paper on my background is actually the words from 'God Bless America' and I printed them out using my computer. I sponged around the edges to sort of give it that distressed look. I then punched out three small flowers, one red, white, and blue and I added a basic pearl in the center of them. I used the spring bouquet punch for these daisy flowers and they were placed on my card using dimensionals.
Also, just a reminder....Melina is currently looking for some new design team members. If you are interested in applying please see her blog post found here.
I hope you liked my card today! Thank you so much for stopping by! And a great big thank you to my new followers.
