Red, White, and...Thank You to Veterans

I know there are many card makers that create cards for our beloved veterans. For this 5 inch x 7 inch card, I am using our International Thank You Rubber Stamp to say "thanks" in a red, white and blue way! Create this Veterans Day card using our stamp that expresses gratitude in several languages. Also, some of our veterans come from many nationalities and this stamp works wonderfully for this card.

Stamp the International Thank You Rubber Stamp onto a light colored card stock. This stamp measures approximately 3 inches by 3 inches. I used a marble card stock in this example.

Stamp with it again onto a blue card stock and cut the words into pieces. Glue each of them vertically as banners on top of the matted card stock.

The red mat is slightly larger than the marble card stock piece to allow for the blue word banners to have some place to show underneath the center piece.

Our United We Stand Rubber Stamp is an awesome patriotic design featuring an eagle, flags, banner, and laurel.

Although, you can leave it as is, the United We Stand rubber stamp is very beautiful when colored in, too. The existing shadowing that is part of the detail of this stamp make coloring quick and the results are outstanding. Adding some distress ink to the edges gives it a vintage Americana look.

The beautiful American flag paper background is by the Paper Studio (found at Hobby Lobby, Amazon and Ebay). If making a 5x7 card, theres plenty of room to add ribbon or rhinestones. This card is an easy to assemble, patriotic card that says thank you in a red, white & blue way! We have other patriotic stamps for making Veterans Day cards, click here to view them.

IPhone Cover Decor

Since Xyron has a fabulous way of making anything into a sticker, I decided to create décor for the back of my cell phone case. Taking beautiful, damask patterned glitter paper from DCWV, 6x6 pad, 'The Glitter Basics" I cut out my iPhone 6s cover pattern using a template I created in plain white cardstock of my case.  To cut out the circle in the middle, I used an X-Acto knife.     The Scooter Rubber Stamp was embossed on red paper and cut out with scissors.  I smudged 'Claret' color StazOn ink around the edges.       After placing the scooter through the Xyron Creative Station, I placed it onto the iPhone pattern and ran both through together.  The Creative Station can take such thick items.  You will see below that I ran embellishments made from shrink plastic and it had no problem with them. One of the magical features of the Xyron's sticker makers is that the top of your project comes out unscathed.  You just peel the plas

Holly Christmas Card

This card size is a 5.5" x 5.5" (13.97 cm x 13.97 cm) and features rolled corners to reveal our Holly Background stamped in Dark Green StazOn ink onto white card stock.  I tore the black and white striped paper along the top and bottom edges and rolled the edges, adding decoupage to hold the curl.  I actually stamped the Holly Background and cut it in half since I was only revealing a little in the corners on the red matte. The off-center 'centerpiece' is one of our ticket rubber stamps from the Holly and Poinsettia Tickets Stamp Set.   Some green glitter paint is added on the corner curls so to minimize the white.
