This is the first one I made. I'd love to tell you papers and such but I usually just start hacking away and I think they were actually quite old. The sentiment was from a swap about 2 years ago and I wish I knew the maker because I would sure like this one! (Gosh this could qualify for an Oldie Moldie Monday card!) The flourish was made on a Cricut and then 3 layers of clear embossing powder were applied. It gave it thickness and a slick-er texture.
This one I do know where the sentiment came from. A wonderful shop called River City Rubber Works. They have some great patriotic stamps over there as well.
And now for my real challenge.........
To make a children's card as well! The red stripes on the paper are shiny so it is extra bright that way. I took the side embellishments from the tail on Donald's hat. I just freehand cut it and got matching buttons. Donald is from the Mickey Mouse paper that is just a bunch of head shots of all the characters.
Yay! I made it through. I hope you are inspired and thank you for stopping by to see them! Now go make some cards for our Heroes! :)
