In honor of July 4/Independence Day weekend, the inspiration photos for this week’s Stampin’ Celebration challenge are USA-inspired!
I chose the red, white and blue stripes as my inspiration for the card that I made. Also, I thought of ice cream when I saw the picnic photo…so I came up with this design:
To make the card background, I used strips of Real Red and Night of Navy cardstock, alternated on a Natural White cardstock background. I used kraft cardstock to mat the stamped images and sentiment. The stamps I used are from Stampin’ Up’s “Sweet Scoops” set.
I used Basic Blue, Real Red, Creamy Caramel, and Soft Suede inks.
I also used a Martha Stewart border punch, mini silver brads, white grosgrain ribbon, and cork accents from Pink Paislee’s 365 Degrees collection.
Thanks very much for looking!
