Hello! Courtney here today and I am sharing a pair of patriotic themed cards created with the Stars & Stripes Mini Theme. Along with this patriotic collection I pulled out the Birthday Celebration Designer Die and Stamp Set. The ‘celebrate’ sentiment from this stamp set makes these cards perfect for those upcoming 4th of July parties.
When creating my cards I used the flag as inspiration for my design layout. On the first card I wanted to mimic the stripes in the flag, so I layered a few different patterned paper from the Stars & Stripes Mini Theme. The layering of different patterns created a a striped look along the sides of the star sticker.
For my second card I recreated the stars and stripes pattern in the flag using the patterned papers in the Stars & Stripes Mini Theme. The red stripe was cut from the pattern on the backside of the Journaling Cards patterned paper and was layered along the top edge of the Stars patterned paper. To finish off the design I added a few rhinestone stars to the patriotic cupcake sticker.
