My Country 'Tis of Thee


Hi, Lisa here today (Terry will be back next Friday) sharing a patriotic card using the sweet solider boy from the Artistic Outpost Hero plate.  I masked the frame from the image using Eclipse tape, then stamped the image in Black Archival on a scrap of pattern paper.  I die cut the stamped panel and layered it onto a Black panel, adding additional pattern paper panels to complete my card.  To embellish, I die cut two "fishtails" using Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Pennants Die, trimming the die cut panels so that I could layer them onto the Black panels.  To further embellish I added Vanilla Seam Binding, and a Red button tied with twine.

From all of us here at Artistic Outpost, we wish you a Happy and safe 4th of July!
