I will share with you tomorrow the cards I made for my 3 sisters for July 4th, but today I wanted to show you one I made for my Dad. His birthday is in July and he usually selected red, white and blue for colors to celebrate. I didn't use those colors this year (you'll see that card on another entry) but I did decide to make him a card using the Red, White, and Blue. My dad is SOOOO patriotic in a quiet way. He doesn't talk about it, but he is a decorated veteran of World War II and a very special man.
I used Stampin' Up!'s new Designer Series Paper Stacks in the Brights collection for the background. The card itself is Night of Navy.
I used the new Simply Stars stamp set for the stars. The sentiments are from the Make a Wish set and the Memorable Moments set. And I punched both size stars using the two SU retired Star punches. Boy, I wish those two were still current so I could use them in class.
