Hi, I'm here today sharing a card I created for the Classy Cards 'n Such Red, White & Blue Challenge. The inspiration photo was a bit more patriotic but I was really inspired by the flower pots and Adirondack chair.
I started with a 5.5 card base and then cut the top layers a 1/4 inch smaller so the framed layers would be 1/8 inch smaller on all sides. I cut the circles with Spellbinders circle dies.
Before gluing the layers together I sponged tumbled glass distress ink on the center of the main card panel with a mini ink blending tool and then cut clouds out of it using a die from my stash. Classy Cards has a similar Memory Box Cards die in stock. I added a bird from the Impression Obsession Seat Birds die set.
I sandwiched the Impression Obsession Grass Border die between the two top layers and nestled the buckets cut from Kraft Card Stock in the grass. The small flowers are from another die in my stash and were molded with a stylus tool from the McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kit. The top layer is popped up higher with Joy Crafts Foam Pads for dimension.
Last I glued the red Happy Birthday cut from the Impression Obsession Greeting die set. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed my take on this week's Red, White & Blue Challenge!
