Red, white and blue,missing you is the theme for today. I stretched the traditional colors for my card. The red, white and blue are there but the blue is not flag blue, but rather a pretty aqua blue.
I chose to make a quick card because my week has been so busy. I've had lots of deadlines to meet..... I hope you find some inspiration from it.
I cut the frame out of We R Memory Keepers card stock using Spellbinders Polka Dot Frame S5-016. I also embossed it. THen I stamped the verse from Hero Arts, part of the set Huge Hugs CL417, with Espresso ink and clear embossed it. I layered the frame over the verse....fits just perfectly.... and added a dark brown Bazzill mat. I cut Spellbinders Petite Ovals SM #5 out of the dotted paper from PinkPaislee's Cupid collection. The stripe paper is from the same collection. I added a narrow dark brown mat to the oval and positioned it horizontally across the stripe paper. I trimmed both ends even with the edges. I added a piece of sheer aqua and polka dot ribbon across the oval and fastened the ends on the back of the stripe paper. I tied the dotted ribbon around it. I fastened it all to a white card which is 3 1/4" x 5 3/4".
