Stars & Stripes Reach For The Stars Card with Lexa

Hi there crafty friends.  It's Lexa here with a happy card to celebrate your Friday! :)

When I saw the Stars & Stripes stamp set for the first time I kept thinking what other possibilities I could use it for rather than for a 4th of July card. You may know that I'm not an American so today I'm going to show you that this set absolutely can make through the whole year.

First, I cut a 4.25" x 5.5" white cardstock panel as a card base, then I embossed it with an arrow pattern. The texture will elevate your plain white background. All the images are stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and I use Distress Markers to watercolor them. I also added some smiley faces to the bigger stars.  Don't they look so cute? The monkey is from Comfy Creatures and I added googly eyes for extra fun.

You can pick some bright colors for this set to make other occasion cards, just like I did. I tied up a white string and tied a bow in the left corner, giving the scalloped banners a place to hang. For the sentiment, I stamp it on a piece fish tail banner which I decided to keep white so it wouldn't overpower the other images.

I hope you like today's card. Thanks for stopping by.
