Hello everyone and welcome to the Helmar Red White and Blue Hop. We have a bunch of wonderful projects to share with all of you and wanted to celebrate the colors of our design team with you. Australia, Canada and America are shining brightly, so grab a glass of your favorite beverage and lets get hopping.Thanks for spending a little bit of your weekend with Helmar. If you get lost along the way, you will find the order below.
My card is 5 x 7 with layers of paper matted, stitched and adhered to the cardfront. I cut the center medallion on my Cricut Mini, as well as the stars. After inking with Ranger Distress Inks, I embossed the top layer of the medallion with one of the Cuttlebug Retro Kitchen folders. Stars are layered using Helmar Zap Dots and then I used my new Epiphany Crafts Star #25 to create the matching epoxy. I adhered this over top one of my larger stars using Helmar 450 Quick Dry.
I wasn’t quite sure what or if I wanted a sentiment on my card just yet. I figured it could be used for Memorial Day, 4th of July, a soldier, or maybe a July birthday. I went to put a stamp on an envelope and spotted the sentiment on the postage stamp! Perfect! A simple Freedom Forever and the card can still be used for any occasion.
Really love the Epiphany Crafts Shape tool and definitely will be on the lookout for more of their shapes and embellishment!
