Welcome to Mema's Crafts, the place where creating new relationships, learning and sharing knowledge is the focus and having fun is a requirement. Here I will share stories about my life and how laughter is used to remain sane in my wacky world. When possible I will share with you tutorials that I have tried and even offer challenges and opportunities to win some great prizes. I hope you will visit often, share your talent and become a member of our family.
Hello everyone, hope each of you celebrated the 4th with family and friends, or maybe you opted to celebrate with that one special someone to share the beauty of the night with firecrackers bursting in the air spilling color all around and a gentle smooth taste of wine to relax and soothe the soul. Regardless to your choice I hope it was what you anticipated, needed and wanted to celebrate your day.
To continue the celebration I have a Red, White and Blue card to share. Its a 4th of July card but I think it could work as a birthday card as well especially if your birthday happens to be on the 4th (smiles). The USA could be replaced with the individual's initial to make it a more personalized card. Wanna see what I mean??? well just keep going.
Again I decided to use very little embellishments and basic Recollections card-stock.
The stars were cut using a Sizzix star die and a star brad to keep the layers together.
I also used some ribbon that I had in my stash to provide separation on the card and add another focal point.
The U.S.A. letters are standard letter stickers that I popped up on foam tape to create dimension.
On the inside I layered one side to follow the Red, White, and Blue theme and added a star in the corner for added focus.
This was a very simple and quick card to make and I would like to enter it in the following challenges:
