Royal colors

Challenge # 4 at KuretakeZig is to create a red, white and blue themed project to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.   Since I was born in England, this challenge was right up my alley.

Blue cardstock was adhered to the front of a pre-made card.  White cardstock was cut slightly smaller and embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.  The edges where lightly inked with ColorBox Cherry Dye Ink.

The sentiment was stamped with ColorBox Kettle Dye Ink on white cardstock.  Three words - Friends, Truly, and Caring - were colored with the brush tips of red and blue Zig Textile Markers.  Once stamped onto white cardstock, I cut them out, matted them with cardstock and added them back to the sentiment. 


I've had these Spellbinders Crown dies for quite awhile, but couldn't find a reason to use them - so this challenge was perfect.  After die cutting,  I lightly inked the embossed edges of the crowns with ColorBox Cherry Dye Ink and adhered them to the card with foam adhesives for dimension. 

Twine was wrapped around the embossed background and the sentiment was added on top with foam adhesives.
