One Nation Under God

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I want to sincerely thank those of you who suggested using Benedryl for my poison outbreak. It totally works on the itching. More spots keep popping up and I look like I'm molting or something, but at least I'm not itching as much anymore :) It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a patriotic card to share with you today.


The new USA Whispers die is one of my all-time favorites and with the Fourth of July just around the corner, I couldn't wait to create a project with it. It is currently sold out but should be back in stock soon. I popped it up with foam tape for dimension and used patriotic papers from Bo Bunny. I've hoarded this paper for two years and I am just about out :( The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA.


The pull-out tag is a Stars Tag die. Both sentiments are from an old K Andrew Designs stamp set.


I used a Wee Petites Super Stars die for the center of the bow.


And I added some Super Stars to the inside as well.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. DL.Art - June Linky
2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday
3. Craftin Desert Divas Craft It Up & Link It Up - July 4th

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Hi, Lisa... I have so missed visiting your blog, and seeing your beautiful card creations. This is one of the most unique and WONDERFUL patriotic cards I've ever seen. The paper and layout are amazing. Very inspiration, and the flowing-ness of the graphics in the US's shape really brings to life the activity and diversity we have in The States. All your cards this month are peaceful and pretty, of course. I'm sorry about not visiting as often as I'd like these days. Thanks for understanding. hugs, de

This card has everything! What an amazing design, Lisa! It's a gift in itself, which I think I say every time about your cards, but it's true. It takes a while for the eye to really wander over every magnificent element outside and inside to appreciate them all! I'm glad the Benadryl is helping and I hope you are completely over it soon! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Lisa, hope the poison ivy outbreak is well under control by now, and pleased that the Benadryl helped with the itching. So love this new USA pierced die. This must be one I've missed! Of course it is phenomenal on this beautiful & patriotic card. Love all the splendid dp-s with the R-W-B motifs, all the patterns combine so well together. And the inside is just fabulous as well, with the cute little tri-colored stars. Take care, and Happy 4th! Hugs & TFS

Brenda in IN said...

What a terrific 4th of July card! Lots of red, white and blue and very patriotic. Love how you did the "One Nation Under God" with the USA. Great job. I hope you are feeling better and the poison ivy is on the way out.That is no fun.

Donna K said...

LOVING this patriotic card. How spectacular, just as it should be for the big holiday coming up. The tag and the way you placed that star over your ribbon are the exact reasons I love you work so much. Attention to every single detail is always impeccable. I'm happy the benedryl helped your suffering a pinch (I'm reading backward through your posts as you can probably tell) <3
