My neighbor Connor recently earned his Eagle Scout badge. My family and I were invited to his celebration. I wanted to do something special for Connor but I really don’t know much about Eagle Scouts. However, what I did have in my favor was the invitation. So, I pulled it out and started to study it… I soon realized I needed to find an Eagle and think Red, White and Blue!!!
The base of this card is actually 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ Basic Black Card Stock. I then began to layer it up with Real Red and Whisper White. With each layer you cut off 1/4″ and each rectangle will fit perfectly inside each other.
I used the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to texture the Whisper White Card Stock.
Next, I used the Big Shot and the Original Die, Stars #2, to cut out several different sized stars. I then layered a few. The white stars I used a two way glue pen on them and then sprinkled Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds Glitter all over them. They are fabulous and sparkly! Love It!!!
The Stamp Set I used is retired. Sorry about that but it was the only Wildlife set I have. It’s called “Wildlife Reserve.” The word Celebrate came from the Stampin Up Fundamental Phrases Stamp Set.
To finish my card I added a few silver brads and a fun little Clip from the Stampin Up Clips Assortments.
There is inspiration all around us! Take the time to look around you and challenge yourself like I did. I pulled the subject and the colors off the invitation and started to design my own special card or scrapbook page. It’s fun!
