Some Patriotic Cards I have been working on.

I have been busy trying to get my 4th of July cards done so I can get them in the mail. To make it fun, I decided to do different cards for everyone based on challenges that are in the blog world to challenge myself to come up with many designs rather than one design and mass produce it.  I admit, I get bored making so many of one thing. 

So you will see a few post over the next day or two of my cards. 
Here is the first one....
This is using that cute little Uncle Sam stamp I mentioned a few posts back.
Used some paper from a Memory Keeper 6x6 paper stack. It reads God Bless America on the inside. 

I will be linking it up to the following challenges. 
Craft Us Crazy #11 : Red White and Blue or Summer theme
Celebrate the Occasion #20 : 4th of July, Red, White and Blue

Please be sure to check out these blogs for some great inspiration.

Here's How I did it...
Card is basic A2 size using Memory Keeper papers from Yankee Doodles 6x6 stack
Stamp is Stampendous- colored using copic markers
Frame is from Lacy Labels Cricut cart size on my Gypsy to fit the image
EK Border stamp for red border
Paisley Cuttlebug Folder to give texture to white strip
MS Bakers twine
