FIRST POST AS A...

DESIGN TEAM MEMBER FOR GO FISH CHALLENGES!


The talented Design Team over at gofishchallenges.blogspot.com have created some really great projects for this weeks challenge, which is "CREATE SOMETHING PATRIOTIC".  With a theme like this, how could you not get inspired...right?   So, this would be a perfect time to pull out all of your July 4th colors or even your home country colors and create something wonderful!

Dont forget to check out the other design team members projects at Go Fish,  the ladies have made some really wonderful and inspirational things.  You can find them by clicking on their names on the side bar or hitting on  the link above.  Now for my "something patriotic".



Old Glory


For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements.  Plantin SchoolBook-mixed letters, cut at 3/4 inches and George and Basic Shapes-square (pg 109), cut at 2 inches.

I started with a 5 1/2"x 8" card that I made using off white cardstock and then cut the red and tan base to mount the image to.  The two pieces for the mount were cut at (red) 5 1/4" x 7 3/4" and (tan) 5" x 7 1/4".  I then cut 8, 2" squares from the paper I had choosen and folded them into a kite shape...I also cut a 1" x 10" strip of matching paper for the rosette in the center,  scored it every 1/4" and finished it off with a red button and a bit of twine.

For the sentiment...I made a mount using blue cardstock, cut at 1 3/4" x 4 3/4" and tan cardstock, cut at 1 1/2"x 4 1/2". 

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.  Kathie
