A Fab Celebration

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   This week's Fab Friday color challenge is quite the patriotic combination! I usually have a bit of trouble when the challenge combinations consist of more than three colors, but I felt like I had pulled this one off...until I realized I didn't use the Night of Navy at all. Doh!

I started with a 3" x 4-7/8" piece of Whisper White Card Stock, I used my Misti to line up the bar from the "Thoughtful Banners" stamp set and stamped stripes of Real Red, Pacific Point, and Tempting Turquoise. The lines didn't turn out exactly parallel or evenly spaced, but I kind of like this look, so I went with it. 

I adhered this panel to a Real Red mat that I embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. I tied a length of Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine around this piece before adhering it to a Pacific Point card base. (I think I had intended to use a Night of Navy card base, but, whatevs.)

Next, I stamped a banner and sentiment from the "Thoughtful Banners" set and punched it out with the Duet Banner Punch. I adhered this piece to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. And that's it! Quick and easy!
