I am back at the craft desk today. Yesterday I spent in front of or under a fan since our A/C was out. Thank goodness it was a cooler day (85 tops … that’s cool for Texas in July), but it was one of the most humid day in days … ugh! The A/C went out Monday evening and was out all day Tuesday. My furry felines had a great time running from window to window chasing birds and squirrels. At night they slapped at geckos on the window screens when I had the lights on … too hot to keep lights on. I am so thankful for the A/C guy that came out to repair the A/C. Bless his heart he had to come out twice because of a faulty part. Just a few hours after we were blissfully cool again the A/C went out … again. David, our A/C guy had to make the long trip back into town to get us operating again. I am thankful for a working A/C and the cool it produces. Well, let’s get onto the project from the craft desk.
I decided to play around with Red, White and Blue for this project. Can’t celebrate in July without a little Red, White and Blue, so here is a little ‘Congrats’ card.
I pulled out the Chalk Talk Framelits dies to make the sentiment pop off the page with some Gold Foil paper. I added a star and some stripes for a subtle nod to the celebration of our nation. One of the stamp sets used here was from the Paper Pumpkin Birthday Bundle kit. I really love those balloons. And here is an inside view:
On the inside I added another balloon with a star and a banner for the sentiment. The red and white stripe DSP was used as the foundation for the sentiments banner. I had a lot of fun playing around with these stamps and paper choices. Although I love red, white and blue color combos, I don't play with them often.
