Red, White and Blue!

There are quite a few challenges around this month relating to a red, white
and blue theme in celebration of Independence Day in the United States.
Not wanting to feel left out (living here in the UK), I thought I'd make a card and
enter some of them too!

I cut three of the stitched circles, glued them together to give
more depth to the frame, but still keeping it flat for posting.

The products I have used:-
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Circle Frames
Digi Stamp Boutique - Love Cake Set
Crafter's Companion 'Textures' Embossing Folder - Distress
Sizzix - Framelits 'Hello' set of dies
Glimmer Dust

Challenges entered:-
Simon Says Stamp - Red, White and/or Blue
Always Fun Challenges - Patriotic
Cards in Envy - Patriotic Please {Red, White and Blue} Card Challenge
Shopping Our Stash - Flag Day (UK)
Creatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes with optional red, white & blue
Come and Get It Challenge - Colours of your Nation (UK)
Dragonfly Journeys - Red, White and Blue-tiful!
Cut it Up Challenge - Patriotic/Red, White and Blue
Paper Sweeties Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Lovely card, Janice. Great tip for giving more depth to the frame. I usually use foam tape/pads, but your technique is much better for posting. xx

  2. What a festive card! I love the textured background!!

  3. Always fun to celebrate with cake, Janice, and your card makes it extra fun! Wonderful design! Wishing you a great Wednesday! hugs, de

  4. Love the bold colors and especially the embossing! You could use that embossing folder on anything to add just a little texture.

    Thanks for joining us for our Patriotic challenge at Cut it Up!


  5. A super red, white and blue card Janice, a lovely cake - a good idea to add a little dimension to the frame but still keep flat for posting.
