The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC745) is red, white & blue w/ a dessert option of Patriotic. Since it’s almost the 4th of July, it sounded perfect. 

My card is pretty simple..I colored & fussy cut the patriotic heart & blue layer behind it. Stamped the greeting on the die cut white front. I also die cut the band of stars down the left & replaced the outline w/ a blue one.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Happy 4th of July!
Today’s Mix challenge (MIX75) on Splitcoast is to have a repeating item, or a parade of items. Gotcha covered! A row of pennants, a background of stars and a heart full of stars & stripes. And since it’s a MIX challenge, I have distress inks, embossing, embossing resist and some sequins thrown in. 

For my patriotic card, I white embossed both of the stars & stripes hearts, and used distress inks to sponge  over the embossing, then die cut them. The red star was a leftover I cut on my Cricut. The patriotic pennants were die cut and w/ the die still in place, I stamped the stars & stripes pennants. The stamps are clear, so it’s easy to see where to stamp. The large pennant in the corner was also die cut. I used the A2 matting basics dies to cut the frame. The star bg inside the frame was made using the stormy sky ink & embossing folder stamping

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great 4th of July weekend!
