Good morning TRC friends. This month's Creative Cafe KOTM has been fun to work with. It combines Doodlebug Picnic Time papers and embellishments with our exclusive coordinating stamps. The kit is called Home of Red, White & Blue. For this card, I used the stamp set that is included with the kit.
I started with a 5x5 dark blue embossed cardstock base. I turned it where you will see the embossing on the inside of the card because I covered the outside front anyway. I covered the front with a 5x5 blue star paper, a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece of small white star then a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of red heart. Then I cut 4x4 piece of white lined and topped it with the same size piece of vellum. To keep these to pages together, I tied red tulle ribbon around them both with the knot to the left side. Backed this with foam and added it to the front of my card. I used the BBQ block I cut from the papers and layered the four puffy stickers over the existing printed images using foam tape to help with stability behind the pieces where needed.
I inserted the flags in behind the stickers and added the embossed sentiment backed with foam tape.
I hope you are being inspired by all the creative designs are DT has been crafting. Come back daily for more.
