Pause Dream Enjoy - For The Boys

Ch# 5 For the BOYS
Begins: Monday, Mar 4
Ends: Sunday, Mar 17

For this challenge I made a Patriotic Invitation. You see my husband became an American Citizen last week and to celebrate this amazing achievement we had a party.


I used Recollections paper and my Martha Stewart star punch that can be used anywhere on the page. The red stripe was cut with my Fiskars rotary trimmer fitted with a scallop blade.

For the fireworks I used a CTMH stamp that I inked with Barn Door Distress Ink and then colored the star portion with Chipped Sapphire Distress Marker. (I love that the markers know what color they are supposed to be so you cannot cross-contaminate them.) I only inked my stamp once but stamped in four different places on the page!

Since I was making over 20 of these and sending them through the mail I only added a little bit of hemp cording for 3D embellishments.
