TDLLC ~ Patriotic "THANK YOU" card using Altenew Peony Bouquet and Label Love stamps

Happy Thursday Everyone!!   Today I have a Design Team card for TupeloDesignsLLC  (*using that link earns me points and you get 10% off your first order ~ thank you!!) for you.

My family made a 4 day journey across the country last week and I haven't unpacked all my stuff yet ~ I'm still working on unpacking a whole house!  I didn't get a chance to make and share a card for Memorial Day, so when I went to make a card tonight I knew I wanted it to be Red, White and Blue.

I used the flower and leaves stamps from the gorgeous Altenew  Peony Bouquet set.   I own the coordinating dies that go with this set, but my Big Shot is still packed up so I had to hand cut the flower and leaves.  I highly suggest getting the dies  ~ it makes it sooooo easy to cut these out.

After stamping the flower outlines on the top layer, I stamped the solid flower on top of them. I stamped the "Thank you" stamp from the Altenew Label Love stamp set a couple of times, trimmed it out and then layered it onto a blue piece of card stock.     The silver sequins are an added touch.  I usually use my Multi Medium Matte, but it's packed, so I used some Scotch Tacky Glue to attach the sequins.

Sorry for the short post today. I had to unpack a trailer today to get to my craft stuff, then trying to get dinner for my family, unpacking some stuff and then working on the card just wore me plum out!   Hugs to you all!!


card stock:  Neenah White, Red and Blue
