Welcome Home Hero



My second card was created for the latest Cards In Envy and The Paper Players challenges. I created this card by layering some pretty patriotic patterned papers from the American Crafts Americana 6x6 paper pad onto my white card base. I then die cut a scalloped circle and a smaller circle out of some more of the patterned paper to ground my focal image. I stamped the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Circle Of Honor stamp set onto some white card stock and die cut it using an MFT circle die. I die cut another larger circle out of more of the coordinating patterned paper and mounted it under the focal panel. I added black dashed lines around both panels. I then stamped the VW Beetle from Unity Stamp Company's Love Bug stamp set onto some white cardstock and fussy cut the image, edging it with a Memento dual tip marker. I then stamped the image again onto more of the patterned paper from the paper pad and fussy cut it out, edging it as well. I adhered it to the white cardstock to make it stable enough to popped up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I then fussy cut a small license plate from the patterned paper tag and adhered it to the Beetle using foam dimensionals for a final touch. I hope you like my card and thank you for visiting my blog!

What a clever card! Love the pairing of the beetle and the sentiment... and the patriotic color combo. :)
