Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: July's American Celebration

Welcome to the July edition of the CTMH Stamp of the Month blog hop! This month, we're getting patriotic with an American and a Canadian version of this stamp set! (If you've arrived from Fancy Melissa's fabulous blog, then you are hopping right along! From here, you'll want to head to Shannon Beck's blog.)

I decided to use CTMH's cool clear cards as the base for my two cards. (There are two styles of clear cards in the package, four side-fold with a scalloped edge and four top-fold with rounded corners; hence, the two styles of my card.) I used the Fanfare paper pack, layering a large piece of B&T on the very back, a piece of random stamped White Daisy card stock as the card base itself, accented with a strip of Fanfare B&T. The flag was paper pieced onto the very front, with a different piece of Fanfare paper behind it. (The flag is adhered to the front of the card, and the B&T was adhered to the inside of the card front so that the adhesive doesn't show.) Both cards were finished off with some embroidery floss and a red sparkle.

If you'd like to see another project I made with the July stamp of the month, a telescoping card, click HERE.

To all my American friends, I wish you a happy (and safe Fourth of July weekend! Thanks for stopping by! Now head to Shannon's blog to continue the hop and get lots of great ideas.
