Patriotic Southwest Birthday

As they want to keep the blog posts short for the Operation Write Home:Finishing Strong Blog Hop, we were encouraged to share our instructions and recipes on another post the same day and link to it for those that are interested. So here is mine!

  1. Cut a 3"x4¼" panel of watercolor paper. Emboss with embossing folder. 
  2. Use an Aqua-painter and Pacific Point and Real Red ink (squeezed onto the lid of those inkpads) to add color to the debossed, or "down" parts of the embossed image.  Allow to dry.
  3. Cut a piece of vellum to 3¼"x4½" and adhere the watercolor panel to this.
  4. Cut a 1"x3" piece of vellum and stamp sentiment in Pacific Point ink, then sprinkle on Clear embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat with heat tool. Cut a banner end with 1" Square punch, Hexagon punch, Triple Banner punch, or your scissors-whatever you preferred method is. Run a line of stitching on the left end of the banner with sewing machine. You are not sewing it to anything else here, just adding the fun stitching detail. Apply adhesive just under the stitching and stick to the watercolor panel.
  5. Cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to 2¼"x5½". Stamp the top and bottom with the triangle design from Dotty Angles set in Real Red ink. Outline piece with Signo white gel pen.
  6. Take a 4"x5¼" piece of white cardstock to use as a card liner and stamp the triangle image again in Real Red on the right hand edge. 
  7. Take a Pacific Point cardbase and outline the front with a white gel pen. 
  8. Adhere the Real Red strip to the center of the cardfront. Then apply dimensionals to the back of the watercolor and vellum panel, adhere to the center of the card.
