Gearing up for the 4th of July? This fun and festive card will get things rolling. I wanted a clean and simple look to show off the banners and this turned out perfectly. It gets bonus points for being quick to create too.
The "Celebrate Today" sentiment from the Perfectly Penned Stamp Set sets off the look and feel of this card beautifully.
The banner flags are varying lengths and widths, with the Navy flags getting special treatment along the bottom edge via the Finishing Touches Edgelits. The White flag was texturized using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. I love the new Fancy Fan folder - great pattern!
A word about that polka dot paper: YIPPEE!! I always end up using all the polka dot prints from any patterned papers I get. And wishing there was more. Well, wishes do come true. Introducing Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper in SIX basic colors all in one package. As always, these patterned papers are double sided, with a larger dotted circle pattern on the flip side. Anyone else doing a happy dance over this?
The Denim Jean Ribbon was the clear winner for this card along with a snippet of Real Red narrow Taffeta (with white trimmed edges). This is a great way to use up those little bits of ribbon left over from other projects or at the end of a spool. Real Red Brads hold the ribbon in place.
