Red, White, and Blue

WOW! Half of the year is almost gone already! Maybe that is another reason we like to celebrate this time of the year, so we don't feel so bad about the passing of time. For the second year in a row, I am looking forward to the fourth of July with family getting together. Even though there will be one who will be greatly missed, we have family coming from the west coast joining us again. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

So here is a CASE that I found on Pinterest. I don't know who the original belongs to, and I have made some of my own alterations, but if it was you, THANK YOU for sharing!

The base is Soft Suede, cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
Whisper White mat: 5 1/4" x 4"
Soft Suede mad: 5" x 3 3/4"
Real Red, Whisper White, and Night of Navy strips: 4" x 1"

Using the stars die strip from the Treat Bag Thinlits, line it up in the center of each strip. The magnetic platform helps A LOT with this step. Save all the stars for another project, like a shaker card! Then I ran the strips through my crimper. You could also score every 1/8" or so and fan fold for a similar look, or just leave them flat. Use liquid glue, Tear and Tape, or glue dots to attach to the Soft Suede mat. Placing the white strip in the middle makes it easier to position the other two equally.

Wrap linen thread around the bottom, taping the ends onto the back. I criss-crossed it in the middle and added a drop of liquid glue where they met. The sentiment is actually from the April Paper Pumpkin  kit, stamped on Whisper White and attached with dimensionals.

Now stack all of the layers together. Add a Whisper White panel to the inside with another sentiment.

Hope that you enjoyed this as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you. Thanks so much for stopping by!
