Our Flag

Happy Memorial Day 2023!

In honor of this day, one of the weekend challenges was to make a patriotic card using stars and stripes in honor of the fallen. 

For my entry I selected Amy's Design, America Frame Die

 The die is large, measuring 5 1/2" square. This is the first time I've used it so I did add a square of wax paper between the cardstock and the die.  It cut beautifully without any issues. 

I used a 6" card base and added the blue sky like paper for the background.  Then secured the die cut frame down, being sure to get all the tiny edges glued down.  

I found the sentiment on Pinterest and thought it went well with the frame and for this holiday.  After sizing it to just under 2" square, I die cut it and the red matting using Tattered Lace, Lacy Days Square dies.  I secured both layers in the center of the card. 

Lastly I added the blue starred ribbon at the fold and secured with a simple knot.  

What a blessing it is that many who have served come home to us and their families.  I am so grateful to all who have served and protected our freedom. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
