For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT430), we are to feature music and/or instruments. I went w/ the music as these are words from “America the Beautiful”. I’m still hearing the song every time I look at my card.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I love Patriotic cards and images and there’s nothing finer than the old red, white & blue. This card was fairly quick and easy. I cut a section of designer paper that included the flag and attached it on a navy blue layer. The eagle and musical sentiment were stamped w/ denim ink and colored w/ Copics. I die cut it using my Out of the Box Nestie technique using a Spellbinders deckled rectangle. With the die in place, I sponged a little antique linen ink on it. This was a left over piece of vanilla c/s and I think it must have been around a long time because when I removed the die, I noticed some fine cracking when I bent it. I kind of liked it and to me, it went w/ the distressed look so I used it. I added a few stamped & punched out stars next to it. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

 On my first card, I stamped the soldier with red ink, masked him and stamped the old flag background with stonewashed ink. A piece of vellum was over laid and the greeting was stamped using a combination of the red/iris chalk inks. I also stamped 3 stars on the vellum and a bunch of the stars on white card stock. Some plain white stars were die cut then I used a star punch to punch out the stamped stars and attach them on top of the die cut stars down the left side. The eagle was stamped w/ the denim ink and fussy cut. I die cut a white frame to attach on top of the vellum panel before everything else was attached to my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

On my second card, I stamped the old flag bg on navy card stock using white chalk ink. The eagle was stamped w/ denim ink and a few areas were colored w/ a red Copic maker before I cut him out. I die cut 2 mega ovals to place under the eagle and added a few red dots around the first oval. Two fussy cut stars were added on either side of the ovals. The navy bg was attached to a white 5.50 x 4.25 card and I stamped the little designs around the edges using the red ink.
