Red White & Blue It's Your Day! Card

There hasn't been much card making going on in my craft room lately as I've been caught up with the Olympics, I'm loving it and Team GB have certainly given us loads to cheer about!

I woke up feeling yucky today, I've come down with a cold and very sore throat.  I really wanted to spend some time crafting today but I know when I feel poorly things don't go at all well.  That's when it's a really good idea to CASE a card.  I saw this lovely card made by Alison on Pinterest and I decided to make a patriotic red, white and blue version.  I used Night of Navy CS for the A6 card and embossed the white panel with the Square Lattice folder.  I popped the navy 5 petal flower up on top of the red flower and then popped the whole flower up on the navy paper panel. 

Some simple stamping and paper and CS strips finished the inside of the card and the envelope.

Stamps: SU! Triple Treat Flower & Happiest Birthday Wishes set
CS: SU! Night of Navy, Real Red & Whisper White

Patterned paper:  SU! prints DSP, Big Top Birthday DSP
Ink: SU! Night of Navy & Real Red
Tools: SU! Square Lattice embossing folder, Fancy Flower, 5 Petal Flower & 1/2" circle punches, MFT Fishtail Flags Stax die, paper piercer & mat pack
Embellishments & accessories: SU! Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Real Red brads, Dimensionals
