The Kraft Journal - Red White And Blue

Good Monday Morning to you!

This week at The Kraft Journal we have a new challenge for you, and it's RED, WHITE, and BLUE!     


I started with a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock.  I layered an embossed Star panel to the Buff Ivory Cardstock panel which I stamped God Bless America. The sentiment is from DeNami Designs. I added a scallop border piece of patterned paper from my stash where the pieces joined. 


I cut out a fire-cracker using a file from the Silhouette store. I just used red and blue papers and of course Buff Ivory Cardstock.  I die-cut an oval from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock which I embossed using a woodgrain plate. Next I nested it onto a fancy scallop cut from Buff Ivory Cardstock.  Final finishing touches include adding some red and blue rhinestones to the firecracker. 

I kept this one pretty flat and easy for mailing. :-)

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your red, white, and blue creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also sharing at Die Cuttin' Divas - I vow To Thee My Country, Craftin Desert Divas - Red, White, and Blue, My Craft Spot - Patriotic, Pumpkin Spice - Red, White, and Blue, City Crafter Challenge - Red, White, and Blue.

I hope you have a terrific week!
