That Star Spangled Banner Yet Wave

This 5 inch x 7 inch card features our Old Glory and Combat Boots Rubber Stamps.  The wave of the flag overlaps the combat boots section and the cards' colors are red, white and blue. The actual supplies needed for this card are very simple (see end for list).
The base of the card was cutout of an 12 inch x 12 inch paper.
Quick hint: To get a 5x7 card size, cut at 7 inch mark and then cut at the 10 inch mark.  Fold the 10 inch in half and you have a 5 inch face and 7 inch tall card.
The rest of the papers were cutout using 8 1/2" x 11" card stock.
First blue matte: 4 1/2" x 6 3/4"
White matte: 4 1/4" x 6 1/2"
(The white matte is the base of our stamped flag, boots and strips compilation.)
For the Old Glory section (red), the paper size is: 4" wide x 5"
For the Combat Boots section (blue), the paper size is: 4" wide x 3 1/4"
Note: your red section will be partially placed under the blue section to create the waving flag.
Stamp or emboss your images. (Embossing hint: rub a dryer sheet onto the paper to lessen the static before stamping with watermark ink).  Flag is embossed in black (a dark blue embossing powder would work great, too) and the boots are embossed in white.
Cut the right side of the flag out completely.  And cut under the flag halfway so the blue section fits under it.

Cut 5 strips of paper out of both the blue and red about 1/4" wide x 4" long.  These will be placed next to the flag and glued to the white paper matte first.
Before you begin glueing, layout your sections mark where your stripes will be.  This is important so that your red and blue strips of paper look straight and evenly spaced.
Glue your red and blue stripes first, then the red Old Glory section and finally the Combat Boots blue section.  Remember do not apply glue on the waving flag tip so you can slide the blue section under it.


Add a blue grosgrain ribbon where the blue and red sections meet, a white bow to the left of center and finally some jewels above and below the white bow.  A white gel pen was used to color in the stars of 'Old Glory'. You'll be proud to give this card to a special veteran!
