For the Love of Patriotism and Service




Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni feature of For the Love of Patriotism and Service!! This month the Alumni team will be sharing creations made with sets that focus on Love of Patriotism and Service!!

I chose to use two sets:  In God We Trust and God Bless America

I made my first card CAS (Clean And Simple) because I like the silhouette of the eagle head and I LOVE this Stars Embossing Folder by Cuttlebug.

I added some score lines, one single rhinestone, and a rounded corner, along with the wonderful sentiment in Onyx Black (Versafine)

My second card has a few more details.  ;)
I stamped the flag image with Versamark onto Watercolor paper, embossed it with Black EP and watercolored it with my Tombow Markers.

I diecut a star inside a star, scored the points to make them 3-Dimensional, and distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo and Black Soot Ranger Distress Ink.



Here you can see the dimension a bit better.  I also added a few rhinestones for a bit of sparkle, and some Stardust Stickles to the stars on the Flag.



That's it for me today.  I hope I've inspired you to make some Patriotic cards, and support our country and those who sacrifice so much for it.

Be sure to check out the ODBD Blog for some more patriotic inspiration!

And here's a link list of all the Alumni participating:


Happy Stamping my friends!!

Two lovely cards, Tosh, but I especially like the flag card, with a combination of contemporary and Americana details and the pretty distressing. Very pretty! Hope you are enjoying a happy week. hugs, de
