Saturday Blog Hop – Patriotic Colors

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring “Patriotic Colors” for their cards this week.  The summer is SPEEDING by…I can’t believe we will be in our new home almost a month!  And, the 4th of July is already next week!  WOW!



This card came together REALLY quickly!  I already had the Wood Textures Designer Paper on my desk, so I pulled out one of the white-washed looking sheets for my background.  Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The Wood Textures DSP is cut to 4 x 5-1/4 and layered on the base card.
  • The Daisies were punched from Real Red, Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock.
  • The daisy centers were stamped tone-on-tone with Real Red, Crumb Cake and Night of Navy Inks.
  • Some large Clear Faceted Gems were added to each of the centers, then the daisies placed across the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Thank you from Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped with Real Red ink along the bottom right corner.


Yep…that’s it!!!  Super simple, but love the patriotic look!  OK…check out what the rest of the Design Team and their Patriotic cards by taking our Saturday Blog Hop!
