Something Striped for the Festive Friday Challenge

You know I love stripes and florals!  The Festive Friday Challenge of Armed Forces Day and/or Stripes was a perfect one for me to use stripes and  florals in a red, white and blue theme!

My project uses some retiring items Celebrate You thinlits and the Neutrals  6" x 6"  DSP.  I will miss them both.  

This is a quick and easy card to make and is a template that can be used for lots of different kinds of cards.  Here are all the details on how to make this card.

Supplies

140272 Thick Whisper White card stock 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2"

102482 Real Red card stock 1-7/8" x 5-1/2" &  2" x 5-1/4" (flowers)

146967 Neutrals 6" x 6" DSP 1-3/4" x 5-1/2"

146957 Sparkle Glimmer Paper 2" x 3-3/4"

143749 Support Ribbon dies

146840 Celebrate You Thinlits

144106 Multipurpose Adhesive sheets 2" x 3-3/4"

104430 Stampin' Dimensionals

104332 SNAIL Adhesive

  1. Adhere  the Night of Navy striped paper from the Neutrals 6" x 6" DSP pack on to the Real Red strip using SNAIL adhesive.  
  2. Adhere the Real Red layer on to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.
  3. Remove one of the protective layers from the Multipurpose Adhesive sheets and adhere it to the back of the Sparkle Glimmer paper.
  4. Cut out " amazing" using the die from the Celebrate You dies.  
  5. Remove the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet backing from the "amazing" and adhere it to the front of the card.
  6. Cut three 1/2" x 1/2" squares from the remaining Sparkle Glimmer paper.  Use the flower from the Support Ribbon dies and cut out the center circle of the flower from the   1/2" x 1/2" Sparkle Glimmer paper.  Repeat 2 more times.
  7. Cut 3 Real Red flowers.  
  8. Place 3 Stampin' Dimensionals on the striped strip where you want the flowers to be placed.  Remove the top protective piece from the dimensional and place a Real Red flower over it.  Take care to center the flower so the dimensional doesn't show.
  9. Adhere the Sparkle Glimmer dots you cut out in the flower centers.
