Red Rubber Designs - Red, White, Blue


Happy Memorial Day!  Red, White, Blue is the theme for my Red Rubber Designs card this week.  The RRD stamp set America I Love is the perfect set to do this theme.  It can be used for a special patriotic celebration card. 





I've also used a saying from the United We Stand stamp set.  The background for my card is red cardstock cut with Spellbinders Lacey Rectangles and a piece of blue cardstock run through the Corru-Gator Paper Crimper.  Inks used are Memento Tuxedo Black and Palette Starry Night.  The image is colored with a variety of Copic markers (too many to name). The base card is Premium White Cardstock.  Sticker jewels are added for accent.



It is Memorial Day, and Red Rubber Designs is having a sale today.  Go shop and get free shipping plus free cling mount for any stamps purchased.  

Here's hoping you have great celebrations of our nation this summer on Memorial Day and Independence Day.
