Oh Say Can You See Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scrapbook News and Reviews "Oh Say Can You See 4th of July Blog Hop". If you came from Lauri Ingram's blog Paperville , you are on the right track! If you didn't please hop to SNR/Card universe and begin the fun. We have almost 100 blogs lined up for this 4th of July blog hop! Here is the card I made just for this Blog Hop:


For this card I started with my image stamped in SU! Pacific Blue ink on white card stock. Then I inked the edges with red ink and matted it on blue card stock then used my gold marker to ink the edges. Next I matted that on red card stock. Then I took my SU! Sweet Stars wheel and stamped that in Riding Hood Red ink on white card stock. I then inked that with blue and matted it on red card stock. Net I cut a piece of blue card stock to 4" x 5 1/4" and used my gold marker to ink the edges of that piece. Then I glued down my matted pieces on the blue card stock. I then wrapped a piece of thin red ribbon around the lower portion of the blue card stock and ran it through a metal star. (The metal start was silver but I used my gold marker to "paint" it gold.) I then glued that entire piece to the center of my red A2 card base.

I also made the inside to match. I thought it would be a great way to thank a soldier. Here's what the inside looks like :



Supplies :
  • Stamps - Liberty United by CI Stamping, "thank you" by Hero Arts, Sweet Stars jumbo wheel by Stampin Up!
  • Inks - SU! Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red.
  • Miscellaneous - card stock by Bazzill, ribbon by Offray, metal star unknown.
I hope you are enjoying the Blog Hop, and my work:) Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to leave a comment - I love hearing what people like/dislike about my work. If you made a card for the Holiday I would love to see it leave a comment with a link to your gallery/blog.

The next stop on the Blog Hop is Debby Boltman's blog Debby's Stuff. So hop on over and continue with the fun!

Happy Crafting,
Kimmy
