Less Is More Stripe Challenge With Unity Stamps


Hello everyone.  I hope y'all had a great weekend!!  I had fun making two Card In A Box cards for a class I might be giving here.  The first one (on the left) I made using glittered fun foam, which came out great but the glue took too long to dry.  The other one (on the right) I made using Floral and Flutter stamps by Concord & 9th and cardstock.  Much easier to make and love how this one came out.  I'd love to know which one you like better.


I made today's card for the Less Is More Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge #325 is to use a stripe on the card.  As soon as I saw the word "stripe", stars and stripes popped into my head, and I knew the perfect image to use - "stars and stripes FOREVER" by Unity Stamp Co.  

I started with a top folding A2 card base of white cardstock.  Then, using the long stitched rectangle die from Die-namics Blueprints 1, I cut a piece of red, white, and blue cardstock.  I adhered a piece of double sided tape to the back of each of them and adhered the "stripes" across the top.  Red, White, and then Blue.


After I trimmed the edges with a craft knife, I stamped the image from "stars & stripes FOREVER" with black ink on to a piece of white cardstock, which I then colored with some Bic markers and then trimmed the image.  I stamped the phrase, adhered some pop dots under the image and applied it to the front of the card.  The last step was to apply some red, crystal, and blue stickles to the areas on the sides of the image.  Done!


I'm telling you, this is a really simple card to make!  Well, I hope you liked this card.  Let me know by leaving a comment below.  Thanks and...Until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil -
