Encouragement Squad - July 2017

Hello crafty friends,

Our color inspiration board for this month has strong summer colors...

I used two of the colors (Red and Blue) for a patriotic encouragement card.  

I started with a stitched rectangle front card panel, which I inked with red and blue using a 12x12 stencil (TCW166).  I added three Zig colored Pretty Posies flowers, which I die cut using the stamp set's matching Posies Fri-Dies onto the middle right corner of the card front.  I next added a red glitter card stock "Smile" die cut using the Smiling Fri-Dies set.  In order to give dimension to my "Smile" die cut... I die cut it three times and glue them together for a nice big impact.  My final touch was adding some white Nuvo Crystal Accents onto the flowers centers.        


  1. Love the way your stenciling draws the eye to your focal point, Mary! Very pretty card.
