Paper Playtime Challenge #78 - Red, White and Blue!!

Happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! It's the first Monday of the month, so that means it's time for another super-fun challenge at Paper Playtime!! The theme of Challenge #78 is Red, White and Blue, plus add a die cut. It doesn't have to be patriotic but it can be :)

Our sponsor this challenge is Ginger Snap Scraps with a $10 gift card - open worldwide!! Anyone who enters can win no matter where in the universe you live!!


The base of this card is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Square, followed by a Grand Square. The red layer is a Spellbinders Postage Stamp die, embossed with the Cuttlebug Stars folder. I used a white gelly roll pen for the faux stitching.


It little boy on the rocket is from A Child's Year. The stars around the edges are from George and Basic Shapes.


The tag is a Spellbinders Pennant die. The red stars and "Horray for the Red, White and Blue" are from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set:

  4. Love the card - grea for a childs birthday. Red/White and Blue is certainly popular this year both in US and UK as we have had more patriotic type celebrations this year too with the queens jubilee and the olympics + in our house it is the colour of my sons' fave football team

  31. This is marvelous, my sweetest friend! Want to know one of my fave parts, which might be unintentional?! I love that you used the postage stamp shape.. it's like a salute to troops as you "mail" them this sweet card. :o) I love the cuts, dimension, and the fab use of twine. The embossing looks especially wonderful on red. Lovely work as always, my dear Lisa! :o)
