Embossed Flag Card

Pinterest is certainly a great place to find inspiration for making cards.  Patty Mowery made a card similar to this and I saw it posted on there.

The background pieces were embossed with Cuttlebug folders; I added some red strips of cardstock and put pen stitching on those.  The stars and sentiments were done with Stampin' Up punches.

I made several of these and left some without sentiments so they could be used for whatever purpose the OWH personnel want to use them for.  In a recent post on the OWH Facebook page, there was a letter from a soldier requesting patriotic themed cards.  I thought this one would make a good addition to my next shipment.

I would have listed this as another 30 Minute Card, but it did take me quite a bit longer than that to get it all laid out, embossed and assembled.  Still, it's one that you can make in just a short period of time.

Linda, I really like this card. Is the sentiment a stamp?

Yes, Donna, the sentiment on this one was done with a stamp.

Hi Linda, It's been a while since I had a chance to pop in, but just saw this pretty, patriotic card on Pinterest. Your pen stitching is still exquisitely done, and I really like the way you've done the embossed stars background with the overlay of the stitched stripes. Hope all is well out in your part of the USA. Happy 4th of July. TFS
