USA proud!

Hey, everybody! A big ol’ Happy Friday to you all! If you’re in the States, then you celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday, and I hope you had a wonderful day! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I thought I’d take a break from the Autumn/Fall and Christmas projects, and share something a little different. This July 4th card features our USA Chipboard Embellishment. I love all things Americana and this chipboard embellishment was just the ticket for a super easy Independence Day card! 

I cut a standard size A2 side-folding card base from ivory cardstock along with a layering panel from patterned paper, and rounded the bottom right corner. I adhered the patterned paper and a trimmed piece of patriotic ephemera to the left side, and added a piece of skinny red washi tape at the seam. I adhered medium blue and red cardstock to the back of the USA Chipboard Embellishment and then ran a black alcohol marker around the outside edge. I adhered the chipboard to the card front along with scrabble tiles from my ephemera stash to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from ivory cardstock and embellished it with the patterned paper used on the front and a piece of skinny red washi tape. I stamped the sentiment in blue ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… really loving how this turned out! This USA Chipboard Embellishment is ah-maaazing!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
