Star-Spangled Birthday Card

I love that July Fourth stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalog, but you can use other stamp sets and products to create a patriotic cards if you don't have that stamp set. I was inspired by Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 36 to create this red, white, and blue card with the retiring Starring You stamp set and Christmas DSP -- yes, Christmas!

The stars are stamped in Vanilla ink on Night of Navy cardstock. (I had to substitute Vanilla for White to match the DSP.) I love this layout! You may recognize it from the owl card I posted last week or this bug card from last year. If you try this layout, be sure to leave a comment on this post so I can check it out!

Supplies: Starring You, Night of Navy ink & cardstock, Very Vanilla Craft ink & cardstock, Kraft cardstock, Merry Moments DSP, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch

Congrats Julie!
My husband and I cruised to Alaska last year and I can tell you that I was awestruck by the beauty. I live on the beautiful west coast of Florida and have traveled to many destinations in the world but by far, Alaska is the most beautiful, tranquil place I've ever seen. The glaciers are amazing. Prepare to be wowed!

I'll admit, I wanted to substitute vanilla, too. That DSP from the Christmas DSP worked out perfectly! Congrats on making the cruise! And thanks for playing with the Curtain Call Crew this week.

BTW-I have CASEd one of your cards and will be featuring it on one of my Show CASE posts very soon.
