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!
