Patriotic Hello

Hello Friends~

{*So Stinkin' Excited This was a Designer Challenge Winner at My Creative Time on 7/10/14*}

Summer is in full swing in our neck of the woods. Sorry I have been absent from making my rounds. I haven't had a lot of extra crafty time, but I did sneak in my very messy craft room and made a patriotic card to prepare for mailing for the upcoming holiday. 

For my card, I used the current sketch and color inspiration from My Creative Time Designer Challenge
I started by stamping the Hexy Background onto a piece of Kraft cardstock and distressed the edges and added it to my card base. I added some Natural Jute Ribbon to the card front topping it with a piece of red star patterned paper. Then I took a length of Blue Baker's Twine and wrapped it several times and tied it in a bow.
Next I die-cut some stars using My Creative Time, 3 Star Stiched dies, as well as the arrow and small stars from 4 x 4 Journal Die + More. The Hello sentiment can be found in the My Creative Time set Floral Sentiments. After adding all the stars, I added some random sequins in red, blue and gold to the card front. 

As mentioned, inspiration was found at My Creative Time Designer Challenge.


I am also sharing at Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes, Die Cuttin Divas: I Vow To Thee My Country, D.L. Art - Patriotic Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a Fantastic Friday!

It feels soooo patriotic with all those stars! It also feels very happy to me and perfect for celebrating our country's birthday.

Sorry your crafty time is limited. I know summer seems like there will be lots of time to craft but when the kids are home it is more challenging.
