Hello everyone... Helen is here. Today, I have a patriotic themed card that I created using the new Color By Faith - Inspirational Arrows Stamp Set and Grungy Flag Background Stamp together with VersaFine Clair Ink Pads.
This card is very easy and quick to create and I am inspired by our June Challenge photo inspiration.
I started this project with creating the background. Using Original MISTI, I stamped the Grungy Flag Background Stamp directly on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Tulip Red Ink Pad and VersaFine Clair Blue Belle Ink Pad. These VersaFine Clair ink pads are pigment inks that we can get great stamped image in just one time stamping. After I stamped the flag, I dried it with craft heater.
I trimmed the background panel to fit on a 5" x 7" white card and I added it on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.
After that, I cut a piece of vellum paper and I stamped 3 of the word arrows from the Color By Faith - Inspirational Arrows Stamp Set using the VersaFine Clair Nocturne (Black). I dried the stamped vellum with craft heater. To avoid wrinkled vellum paper, I pre-heated the craft heater for several seconds to make sure it was hot enough to dry the ink.
Once the vellum paper dried, I added it on the card by adding the dries-clear adhesive glue right under the stamped images, and then I wrapped both edges around the front card and secure it with some dries-clear adhesive glue. You can leave the inside of the card as is, but I always like to add a piece of cardstock to cover the extra vellum inside the card, just look nicer.
My patriotic card is done and hope you all enjoy it, too. It is your turn now to create and share your projects inspired by the challenge inspiration picture this month.
