Red, White, and Blue

Red, White and Blue or in the case of Stampin’ Up! colors – Real Red, Whisper White and Dapper Denim.  The perfect combination for a patriotic card.  The 4th of July is quickly approaching and it will be Independence Day – you could use this idea for an invitation to a summer celebration.


I used the Watercolor Words stamp set on page 136 of the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual catalog.  I even used the card idea on that page!  I just switched up the colors.  The card on that page uses the Note Cards & Envelopes and I actually made a full sized card so I added my Whisper White layer onto a Real Red card base.  My finished card is 5-1/2″ wide and 4-1/4″ tall – that is the normal size that I create.

I added the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape which is a variety of Black & White designs in 5 different widths.  The Real Red strip is stamped and then punched on each end with the Triple Banner Punch.  I added a silver Mettalic Enamel Shaped star.

I even decorated the inside of the card this time –


And be sure to dress up the envelope too – a little stamping and a bit of washi tape too.

Enjoy your day!
