Happy Independence Day to all my American family and friends. Hope you have a safe, fun-filled day of celebration.
My card today features one of the adorable images I won from "The Doodle Garden". You can see all of Jen's images here:
I have always loved the Red, White & Blue colour combo and this little Sailor suited that combination perfectly. I decided to make this a flip card when I saw a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for it. The inside sentiment has been rubber stamped and says "Happy Birthday". The star was cut from chip board using a Sizzix die & coated with a thick layer of gold glitter glue. I used a double thickness of foam squares to make it pop up enough to catch the front flap of the card. The Dps are a "modge podge" from assorted companies that seemed to work well together.Several different sized buttons help to finish this card up.
Well, since it is extremely hot here in SW Ontario, my hubby & I are going to just chill out at home - he on the computer; me papercrafting.
