Bloggers Challenge – Red/White/Blue

Our Bloggers Challenge today is the color combination of Red/White/Blue in honor of Memorial Day.  I want to thank the men and women who honor us by their service to our country.  May God Bless them!

Pretty simple card today…I wanted an understated look.  I started with the card size of 3 x 6 in Brilliant Blue cardstock.  I pierced a row of holes along the top of a strip of Real Red cardstock and layered it on the base.  Then I added a strip of slightly wider Whisper White over the bottom edge of the Whisper White.  I stamped the star from Stampin' Up!'s July Fourth stamp set in Brilliant Blue and Real Red on Whisper White, then punched with the Large Star punch.  I popped them up on the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added the word Remember from In A Word, a stamp set in the Summer Mini in Basic Black in the lower right corner.  Finally, I used the Itty Bitty circle punch with Brilliant Blue cardstock, and added a Bitty Button Circle on top and placed it with a Mini Glue Dot.

 

I'm off today to work over at Mary's house (of Create with Connie and Mary!) on my wedding favors.  Hope to get a good chunk of them done.  The final assembly will be made onsite in Cancun.  I'm sure we will also be discussing the NEXT session of Create!  Have a great weekend!

Great card!  I wasn't too fond of the in a word set from the catalog…but it is on my must have list now!  You have made several fantastic patriotic cards this week 😀
