Red, White and Blue


Red, white and blue are THE colours of the moment here in the UK. I made this card to celebrate that and also as the challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge at the moment is Cities of The World. This stamp by Penny Black is my current favourite as London is one of my favourite places too.

I used an accordion fold card as the base for this card and covered it using Papermania Portobello Road papers. From some papers from Crafts Beautiful magazine I cut the bunting. The London stamps were stamped using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and then mounted onto red card.  The crown stamp is by Papermania/ Docrafts too.


I am entering this card into the following challenges :
Fashionable Stamping Challenges  - Cities of the World
Penny Black  - London Celebrates
Just Keep on Creating - Anything / travel stories
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Medals and Monarchs
