My Creative Time: Thrifty Thursday


Hi, today is Thrifty Thursday over at the My Creative Time blog.

 I created a card using my scraps in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day.

I cut the base of my card out using left over Kraft card stock I had and My Creative Time's 4x6 Journal Die. I then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Stars folder.

I used the Peachy Keen Stamps: God Bless The USA. I stamped and paper pieced it onto red, white, and blue card stock. I then inked the edges with Color Box ink. I used the largest star and heart from My Creative Time's 4x4 Journal Die and More to cover up the stamped stars. I then added glossy accents to it and put clear glitter over top.

I cut out stars using the My Creative Time's 3 Stitched Stars and 4x4 Journal Die and More. I added glossy accents with glitter to it as well.

I cut out the sentiment banner from My Creative Time's Chocolate Greetings Stamp set die and stamped on the sentiment from the Piles of Smiles Stamp set.

The twine is American Crafts and Dollar Store Sequins.
