Memorial Day is creeping up fast and we're feeling patriotic at The Twinery this week! Memorial Day always means the start of summer here! The kids are getting out of school and the home town festivals and carnivals are already beginning. Don't forget to honor those who serve and remember those who have done their service for this country of ours.
This card is fresh and fun and really easy to make. I started with a white card base and then cut a navy panel slighty smaller. Next I cut an even smaller panel of white card stock. I stamped it with a sentiment and lines of music in light blue and pink. Then I added some splashes of watered down dye ink and smooshed the corners of the paper with the ink that was left. When it was dry I added some die cut stars.
Then I flipped the panel over and put some double sided tape around one of the die cut star openings. I cut lengths of Twinery Firecracker Twine and filled the opening.
Next I added some adhesive foam tape in all the solid spaces of the card so that when I attach it to the card base this panel will be raised - you can't feel or see where the twine is under the panel.
The die cut openings allow the dark navy panel and Twinery Twine to peek through. This adds texture and interest to the card and was easy right? The finishing touch is a sprinkle of bitty gold stars!
