Quick Red, White & Blue Language of Friendship Card

Today is Memorial Day in the US when we honor those who’ve given their lives in service for their country.  I’m sharing a red, white and blue card for you.  This is a quick card that I made with two stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! will be retiring next week, Language of Friendship and Friendly Phrases.  My card was inspired by the CAS-ual Fridays 102 Red, White and Blue Challenge.

Language of Friendship

I started by stamping the Friendly Phrases sentiment in Pacific Point ink on a Whisper White panel, then embossing it with the Stripes Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Pacific Point DSP from the Brights DSP Stacks, then to the Real Red card front with SNAIL.

Language of Friendship 1

Then I embossed a Whisper White card stock square with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and I adhered it with SNAIL to a panel of Pacific Point and Real Red DSP from the Brights DSP Stacks.  I adhered the layered squares to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the bird images from the Language of Friendship stamp set in VersaMark ink on Real Red card stock and punched them out with the Bird Builder Punch.  I adhered the wing to the bird with SNAIL, then the bird to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the flower images from the Language of Friendship stamp set in StazOn Jet Black ink on Pacific Point and Real Red card stock, punched them out with the Boho Blossoms punch and adhered them together with SNAIL.  I placed a brad through the center of each flower, then adhered them to the card front with Stampin Dimensionals.

Language of Friendship 2

I added a few extra Pacific Point and Real Red Boho Blossoms punches to the Whisper White panel inside the card with SNAIL.
