Red Rubber Designs - Patriotic


Memorial Day is this month, and we honor our service men and women.  Last week I previewed the United We Stand new release stamp set for you and told you to come back to see my card made with that set.  Here it is, a patriotic card to honor our service men and women.

The base card is Premium White Cardstock and the printed paper is from the Just Like Dad paper pad.  I also used the Corru-Gator on a section of green cardstock to be placed behind the main image.

  The image is colored with Copic markers (R37, B18, YG93, YG95, YG97, E11, E35, E70, E71, E74).  The image is cut out with Spellbinders dies Classic Circles Lg and Petite Scalloped Circles Lg. 

Rick rack trim accents the corrugated cardstock to tie the red color to the flag.  Inks used are Memento Tuxedo Black for the image and saying and Color Box Chalk Ink Olive Pastel to sponge the edges of the circle image and the saying.



Thank you for looking at my card.  You can find more patriotic stamps at Red Rubber Design in the section of New Releases this month.
