Core'dinations: Stars N Stripes Thank You

Some may know that I am on the Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock® Card Design Team. We are fortunate to be working with David Tutera™ Celebrate Card System (exclusive to JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores®).

I haven't posted much about it as we're busy creating tutorials on Core' under David Tutera Cards' How-To section. In the Congratulations category, I have three tutorials up (Baby Congrats, Blue Congrats and Chevron Congrats) - SO EXCITED!!

I'd like to share a card that I created with the card system and one of my favorite paper manufacturer, Authentique Paper...PERFECT FOR OUR VETERANS!

Stars N Stripes Thank You by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - 5½ x 5½" White Cardbase, A7 Layer Bulk Sheets, Sentiment Sticker and Sand It Gadget: David Tutera Celebrate Card System; Patterned Paper: Authentique Paper (Glory Collection); Ink: Ranger (Distress Ink); Trendy Tape: Queen & Co.; Folder: Sizzix; Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever)

First I took a blue A7 Layer Bulk Blue Sheet and used a star design embossing folder. I used the Sand It Gadget to highlight the embossing.

Next, I trimmed the embossed cardstock and patterned paper to size and adhered both papers to the 5½ x 5½" card base.

Then I placed two layers of Queen & Co. Trendy Tape to cover the middle where the two papers meet. Edge the card base with red ink and add the sentiment as shown below.

A second look at the card...

APPRECIATION to our veterans - past, present and future!!

Thanks for stopping by!
