America the beautiful

6/11/22 – Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!

Hey y’all! I hope you’re having a terrific Tuesday! We’re already a week into June and that just blows my mind! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Pop Tone cardstock that’s on sale this month so be sure to stock up! You can’t go wrong with the amazing colors to choose from! This 4th of July card I’m sharing uses Sweet Tooth and Wild Cherry cardstock with stamping in blue ink. This is a simple Americana design that would be super easy to mass produce!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base, layering panel and die cut stitched square from Pop Tone Sweet Tooth cardstock along with a layering panel and square from Pop Tone Wild Cherry cardstock. Using the Deep Red Grunge Stars & Stripes rubber stamp and Catherine Pooler Suede Shoes ink, I randomly stamped the grunge flag over the white cardstock layering panel and then stamped the flag once on the die cut square. I spritzed the die cut square with Tattered Angels Iridescent Silver Glimmer Mist to add a little shimmer. I then adhered the stamped pieces to the red cardstock layers.

I stamped the sentiment from The Project Bin’s Red White and Boom stamp set in Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red ink on the die cut square and then heat embossed it in Hero Arts Cherry Red embossing powder to make it stand out. I adhered the die cut square to the background panel and then adhered them to the front of the card base. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet red gemstones.

I cut the inside panel from Pop Tone Sweet Tooth cardstock and embellished it with a couple leftover strips of Pop Tone Wild Cherry cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in blue ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… really loving the Americana aspect of this card in white and red cardstock with stamping in blue ink!

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
