Honoring the Brave

close up

Hi readers! Happy 4th of July! If you’re reading as a US citizen, we’re celebrating our day of Independence and I’d like to say on behalf of the entire Simon Says Stamp Team, we are very grateful to each and everyone that has served in every shape and form! In this spirit, we asked the always fantastic Laura Bassen to make a card for us to showcase with this theme, and this is what she came up with! A combination of embossing paste, From Us stamp set, Diagonal stripe stencil, and of course the Falling Stars stencil!

Don’t forget to watch the video (& sing along ;))! Enjoy!

  1. Great design idea for all occasions! BTW… I played your singing for my husband, who is a musician and he said…”not bad”…so sing on!

  2. Such a great card. Love the faded red stripes and how the star with the paste pops against the navy. :)

  3. Laura, love patriotic cards, especially this one! I’ m an Army brat, so anything patriotic still gives me the chills!

  4. What a great card! I love the fading stripes leaving white space for the message. Thank you for another great card idea!

  5. Great example of a way to honor our service men and women. It could work for a birthday card also. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Love anything patriotic … just lost my husband of 33 years and he was a purple heart and air medal recipient from the Vietnam war … we have our home decorated in the red/white/blue theme and I am always on the lookout for card creations to make and take to our local VFW for fundraisers. This how-to video was so helpful as I would love to recreate this amazing card creation!

  7. Great design! Love the little “Lee Greenwood” musical touch! You always have so much fun when you do your videos . . .
