After being inspired by the "It's All Green To Me" Challenge, and a hot drink cuff from a favorite beverage that had been enjoyed with a dear friend, this card came to be.
Want to make a card similar to this one?
Here is what you will need:
A hot drink cuff cut into a few triangles, paint them with Picket Fence white crackle paint from Ranger, then glue a few random red buttons on them. The background paper is from Lilly Bee and was trimmed around the edges with pinking shears. Stamp a sentiment from the "Wintergreen Holiday ATC set" from Cornish Heritage Farms with Distress ink and then sprinkle some Frayed Burlap distress embossing powder and heat. The stars are from Making Memories and used to be purple, but I put some glue on them and then used a little Doodlebug red glitter to get them to this gorgeous color. Put it all together with a little adhesive and then ruffle a silk ribbon to the bottom by gathering it as you are stitching.
So would you like more ways to be inspired? I will be celebrating this special day tomorrow in my craft studio, and would love to have you come back to visit and see what I will be sharing!
Enjoy your tour of the U.S. today!
