God Bless America

Hi friends. We just celebrated Memorial Day yesterday here in the US and I couldn’t resist just one more Patriotic themed card featuring beautiful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and  fabulous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I printed out my digital sentiment and cut it with the smallest of the the Oval Stitch & Cut Lge Silver Stitch Dies.  I then layered it on red and blue leaving a small border on each layer.  I backed a piece of red cardstock with Stick It Adhesive and cut with the Chicken Wire Frame.  I then adhered that to a piece of white cardstock and trimmed it down to the desired size.  I then layered that on to red cardstock, then white cardstock and adhered it to my A2 size card base.

I kept my design very clean this time, meaning no fuzzy mulberry paper layers, no inking of flower petals or edges and just three bold colors.  Okay, I did sneak a little green in for the leaves, but I’m not counting that!  I love red, white and blue cards because the bold colors just make them POP.  This card could easily be a birthday or other occasion  card as well by switching out the sentiment.
My beautiful bi-color double-loop bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Red and Electric Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also ran a piece of the blue across the middle topped with some 3/8″ White Diamond Satin Ribbon.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
I love all the different looks you can create with the Shasta Daisy die just by altering petal colors and inking (or not) some of the layers.  I will include a video tutorial below on how I made these fabulous flowers.
