Perfect Pairings – Stars & Stripes

It is the summer holiday weekend! Time for some star-spangled color.

Color Hues (#44), Cupcake Inspirations (#547) and Four Seasons (July):

And I chose the current Facebook Case-ing Tuesday Sketch (#362):

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Starry Sky cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (3¾” x 5”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with the retired Star-Crossed Embossing Folder.
  • Vertical Strip: (2” x 5”) Starry Sky Striped patterned piece of paper from the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Shape – Star: Basic White and Real Red cardstock scraps.
    • Using three sizes of Star dies (2⅞”), (2”) and (1”) from the retired Stars Framelits Dies set, the two Stars were made.
  • Sentiment Label: (2” x ¾”) Starry Sky cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, Happy Day, from the retired Perfect Pairings stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.

All of the elements were arranged to match the sketch.  I chose to add an additional Star because I wanted a little more pop with the red color.

Here is to you and I hope you have a Happy Day on the 4th of July!

Thanks for spending some of your time with me.  Cheers,  Jolanda.
