HEARTFELT CREATIONS BOTANICAL ROSE PATRIOTIC CARD
Hello, my stamping friends! A heartfelt thank you for stopping by Guneaux Designs. If you have stopped by in the last several weeks, you may have noticed that I have used Heartfelt Creations products to create a few cards. I have fallen in love with their products! 🙂 This card share today is a Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Patriotic Card.
This card is for this week’s Color Challenge, CC640 on Splitcoaststampers. The hostess chose a wonderful color combination of SU Dapper Denim, Real Red, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White. As a “dessert” option, she asked for something patriotic.
When I think of the word, patriotic, the American flag comes to mind. However, the definition of patriotic is, “of, like, suitable for, or characteristic of a patriot”, or something that represents the love of one’s country. Giving thought to that, I decided not to use a flag image, but to use the National Flower of the United States, which is a rose. The rose was designated the official flower and floral emblem of the United States in 1986. Thus, I made a white paper rose the main feature of my card.
To create my card base, I decided to fold the front in the form of a “V” for victory. Then as I was adding the patriotic ribbon, I realized that the form of the card front with the ribbon appears as a metal that one would receive for a significant achievement (e.g., gold medal for the USA). That reinforced my thought process regarding how to decorate the card.
The white sentiment is difficult to read as it is a small print and embossed. It says, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible. George Washington”. I love the sentiment and am in total agreement with it. The sentiment is from an ODBD stamp set, God Bless America.With all of that being shared, when I look at the card, patriotic is the word that quickly comes to mind. I hope you enjoy the card!
