Summer Card Camp

You've probably heard about Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner's amazing Card Camp. It started today and I was so inspired that I ran to my studio to create this card using the color combo for this week...
I wanted the flag banners to have some dimension so I stamped two of them, one on top of the other and then cut it out like this...
Then, I scored between the two flags and it creates such great dimension when you wrap it around the string...
I also like stamping over patterned paper. I used my new striped echo park paper and stamped the Hero Arts Cloud background stamp right on top using Soft Pool ink. Love it. Oh, and the little clouds are from Papertrey Ink. I ran them through my big shot using a dot embossing folder to add dimension.

That's all I got for now. Off to watch the Bachelorette. She better stop talking about Bentley! lol

What great ideas you have with the banner stamp and stamping over your printed paper. Love how both of them turned out. Look forward to more of your cards during "camp".
