Summer Things with Bling Camp Wannastamp!
I absolutely LOVE anything Americana, so I'm quite proud of this card! It needs some red, you think? NAHHHHH! You can always take a Bravo Burgundy Marker or Real Red Marker and ink up the "&" between "Stars & Stripes," if you need to, or use Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon in place of the Chocolate Chip! It all looks good! With Gold Encore ink sponged around the edges, this card looks mighty GRAND, just as a July 4th card SHOULD BE to show respect for this great nation! This is one of the cards we made at my Summer Things with Bling Camp Wannastamp and it's my favorite of all the items we made - including the flip-flops! The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!, with the exception of Double-Stick Tape. Recipe: Paper: Kraft - 8-1/2 X 5-1/2; Soft Suede - 2 X 1-1/2 (4); Very Vanilla Scrap Stamps: July Fourth (P. 28 of the Summer Mini Catalog); Red, White & Blue Jumbo Wheel (P. 28 of the Summer Mini Catalog) Inks: Gold Encore; Soft Suede; Night of Navy Marker Miscellaneous: Stampin' Sponge; Stampin' Dimensionals; Pencil (to mark the center - it helps you line the panels up straight); Stamp-a-ma-jig; Wide Oval Punch; Jumbo Wheel Handle; Kraft Taffeta Ribbon - 2" long; Chocolate Chip Wide Grosgrain Ribbon - 2" long; Scissors; Double-Stick Tape (for taping down the ribbon)
