God Bless America

Sentimental Sundays is looking for 'Anything but a Card', and the Kraft Journal wants Kraft paper and Memorial Day for inspiration. So here's a tag honoring our liberty to qualify for both challenges. Just found out this morning that I won over at Sentimental Sundays for my single layer card here.



The stamps are from Stampin' Up, an older set called 'Land That I Love'
The two sentiments,stars, and flag are accompanied by three other
stamps- another sentiment, an eagle, and a Statue of Liberty. A perfect set for a patriotic project.

I started with a chip board tag, then added the Real Red and kraft layers.
those teeny tiny stars are the tiniest brads that I have ever bought and come in the patriotic colors and silver.

The flag stamp was inked up with Sahara Sand and then with markers I colored the rubber and then huffed and stamped onto plain white paper.
after a little fussy cutting it was done and glued right onto the kraft layer, over the stars.

The lower sentiment reads, "Where liberty dwells there is my country."

Thanks for coming by!

So cool, I love anything on Kraft cardstock, goes so well here with the patriotic theme. Saw your comment about entering the W&S DT call, that's awesome, good luck! Wouldn't it be fun to "work" together?!

I love your patriotic tag! I agree with Kathy that kraft goes so well with the patriotic colors/theme. I really like the stamps you used. Great sentiment.

Thank you for joining our Anything But A Card challenge at Sentimental Sundays .

What a fantastic tag! Love, love, love your stamping. You did a great job with the flag. Love the scallop at the bottom and the tri-color ribbons, too.
Thanks for sharing this with us at The Kraft Journal.
