Hello Pebbles Friends! It is Leanne here today, sharing with you some Red, White and Blue Celebration cards. What better way to celebrate and feel patriotic than with a little colour embellishment.
I initially started by creating backgrounds for my cards. These water colour bases help to make the patterned paper pop on the white cardstock. The first card celebrates the use of patterned paper.
Select a patterned paper that can be fussy cut. The Simple Life Bougainvillea paper was trimmed to fit a piece of white cardstock measuring 3.75″x5.75″. The white cardstock was given a royal blue water colour wash.
Layer the white cardstock on top of a matching blue cardstock.
Add small amounts of foam tape to the fussy cut flowers.
Complete your card by adhering the blue cardstock to a 4″x6″ card base and add a small sentiment in the lower left corner.
To create this next card, you will need a watercolour wash that resembles fireworks in bright red and blue.
Gather your supplies of red, white and blue patterned papers. Trim each sheet allowing only a small border to show between layers.
Punch or trim several different sized stars to layer on top of the water colour background.
Add foam tape to the red stars to create dimension and interest.
Complete the card by adhering the layers of patterned paper to a cardstock base. Add a sticker sentiment with foam tape.
To create the final card I decided I would take my red, white and blue celebration theme quite literal. Why not add the words directly to the card.
Using the We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punchboard punch out the letters to spell “RED”.
Add the letters to a gray water colour wash and layer onto a blue patterned paper.
Complete the card with white thickers, an ampersand die cut from Simple Life and some fussy cut blue flowers. Mount the layers of patterned paper onto a cardstock base and add an extra sentiment sticker.
Hopefully these cards inspire you to now create and have your own red, white and blue celebration! Thanks for visiting.
