Flag Day!

It’s Flag Day! That means my grandpa, a proud WW2 veteran would have been 93 years old today.  Flag Day has always been special and always stirs up a lot of emotion for me. But, hopefully, the common thread for each of us is still ‘God Bless the USA’.

I created this card with the new Stars & Stripes stamp set and die from Taylored Expressions. I can’t believe how easy it was to ink up the blue & white star area separately from the stripes with the edge of an ink pad. I’ve been using the Clearsnap brand of ink pads (My Favorite Things, Clearsnap and Stephanie Barnard colors!)  with foam cushion lately, and I love them because I don’t have to swipe or press repeatedly to ink up my image.

The card was for part of the Crafter’s Companion Product Focus review we did at Splitcoast for the Embossalicious Folders. Easy accents, every time. I used the Swirl Corner embossing folder for this one.

Happy Flag Day, my friends.

God Bless the USA!

  1. Hi Lori, I do love that swirl embossing, very cool. I love this card, so pretty. Hope your summer is off to a good start. I am way busy at work, not thrilled about that but having a job is a good thing. I will miss seeing you at CHA, hope it all goes well.

  2. I just received my TE stamp set and die in the mail this week. I LOVE your card! The embossing swirl is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Lori! This card is absolutely beautiful! I love how you added stitching to just the corner and the white ink on kraft is so pretty! Hope you’re having a great 4th!
