Good Wednesday morning! I hope you’re having a good week so far. I was a happy stamper with last weekend. I received a box full of new Designer Series Paper. Woohoo! I opened each package and “English Garden” spoke to me. The first paper I saw was this red and white watercolor looking striped paper. I instantly thought of a flag and went straight to designing. I wanted to create something that gave you the feel of being patriotic without looking like a traditional flag. I have to say I was doing my “happy chair” dance when I finished this one. I am looking forward to being able to share it with someone personally.
CARD BASE: Starts with a Whisper White Base then a layer of Red & White Watercolor Striped DSP from the English Garden Designer Series Paper pack.
FOCAL POINTS: I love how the Night of Navy strips fit within the white and the notches add just a nice touch. The Silver Glimmer stars help to fill in the the white stripes, they are a die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die Set. There are 6 in a row so it made quick work of cutting them out. LOVE IT!
SENTIMENT: The “Thanks” is from the Hello You Thinlits Die Set cut from Silver Foil. TIP: I highly recommend using either the wax paper or fabric softener sheet technique to more easily release the cardstock. Either will works, it’s what is your preference.
