This month I challenged my ArtFire guild members to create a card using stars or stripes that were either red, white or blue.
I stretched the definition of stripe for today's card but since I run the guild, I'm saying this one works - LOL!
The swooshy stripe is from a set from Raisin Boat and I stamped it first and second generation for the variation in color (midnight muse - one of Stampin' Up's new In Colors). The sentiment is from paper and stamped with SU's red ink.
I thought this one would be fun for birthday's or other events as well as possibly 4th of July. I see maybe adding a small embellishment somewhere around the sentiment, maybe stars, maybe balloons, maybe even a grad hat on the letter C to personalize it for a specific card theme. But for now, I will keep it simple and leave it as is.
I do have a couple other ideas floating around that I will try to create before our challenge deadline of the 30th. And THAT all depends on crafting time now that the kids are out of school! Have a great day!
