USA Card


I'm slowly working on cards for a card swap I'm in.  We're doing 16 cards -- 1 for each month plus 4 more.  So here's one for July.  I used the Independence Day mini and cut the hat out at 3 1/2 inches.  I used the Gypsy so was able to do the band and the stars in different colors.  I added yellow stickles to the stars and white faux sticking around the rim.  The stamp is a Studio G, I think and the ribbon was some old Stampin' Up! that I'm almost out of.  Then I just finished it off with some skittles.  I'm not sure where the patterned came from, it was just in my stash.

I have to say that using my Gypsy makes creating so much easier and faster.  I usually design while hanging out with my family.  The hardest part is picking out the papers, but this one was super fast today :-)

  4. What a great card! Isn't the Gypsy a wonderful thing? I designed a bunch of stuff at the cottage last weekend. There isn't even a TV there, let alone the internet, or anyof my scrapbboking supplies for that matter... TFS :)
