The steps I used to create my card are listed below:
  1. Stamped Sea Grass with Desert Sand on Solar White cardstock twice and trimmed around both images, taped together and applied Flower Soft Delphinium Blue as shown.
  2. Stamped Summer Pot Small with Alabaster Fluid Chalk Ink on leftover brown cardstock.  Applied white embossing powder and overheated a little for a fired pottery look.
  3. Cut Large Bow Die cut with leftover red cardstock and applied Strawberry Flower Soft to the center.
  4. Used largest Mini circle die and Magic Matter to create a circle for the sentiment from Spring Medley clear stamp set, stamped with Danube Blue.  Applied FS Patriot around the edge.
  5. Created the CAC backgrounds with Fluff and Summer Sky and Desert Sand inks.  Used Spellbinder largest Curved Rectangles die as a stencil for the backgrounds.  Used the largest die cut and Neenah Laid Ivorystone behind that.
  6. Everything was mounted as shown.
I think this card could be used for an Operation Write Home soldier or a thank you card for someone as July 4th draws nearer.  It was pretty quick to do and fun.  Loved working with the dies and the Flower Soft.

Check out the other blogs listed on the IO Blog for some really beautiful cards.  Thanks so much for for stopping by to look.  Check the IO blog on June 30th for the IO Gift Certificate  winner and on the Flower Soft Blog for their winner.
