Happy weekend everyone. The weather has been spectacular this week here in the UK. Fortunately we've had a nice cooling sea breeze to help with the hot sunny days down here in Pembroke.
I've been seeing quite a few red, white and blue cards around lately and they reminded me of a couple of cards I made a few years ago. I decided to do a remake of one. This is my 2015 version, just in time for the 4th of July celebrations in the USA.
I've used an A5 side opening Landscape card as the base. I inked in red around the edge of the top half. The lace is a Kaisercraft stamp and I used Memento Paris Dusk and clear embossing powder. I cut a thin strip of red card to go across the middle and a Marianne die for the clock.
The tag was made with the Kaisercraft Vintage Cherish stamp and Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I cut it out freehand and added a red paper clip, a triple seam binding bow and a couple of punched hearts.
The postmarks are another Kaisercraft stamp and I again used Paris Dusk. I thought it was perfect for the top right corner. I'd forgotten I had this stamp but now I'm thinking of lots of possibilities for it.
Finally, the sentiment stamp is, yes, also from Kaisercraft. It's one from the Life Sentiments set. I used Artiste red ink and clear embossing powder before layering it onto red card. It's a sentiment that I need to be reminded of now and then. I added a few flat backed red gems to finish the card.
We don't celebrate Independence Day in Britain but I hope all my American friends have a lovely weekend of festivities.
I've entered this card in the following challenges:
