Try This Simple Red, White + Blue Summertime Card

Hey there crafty friends! I hope you had a great 4th of July. Is it too late for me to sneak in one more card in RED WHITE AND BLUE? I have had fun making festive, patriotic handmade cards this season, so I'll link a few others at the end of this post if you've missed them.

Today's blog post is part of Die Cut Obsession Day on the Impression Obsession blog, and I've got a sweet and simple card idea that you can easily customize for any occasion. Ready to take a look?

I used the Stars die set which takes plain old STARS to the next level. One die creates a star with tiny star cut outs, (TIP: use those tiny stars as extra details!) Plus, the star outlines can mix and match. 

I die cut stars from two shades of blue. Using multiple shades of red or blue is a simple way to expand your color palette, while maintaining a patriotic feel. Now, take a look at this card, but picture the stars in a rainbow of colors - depending on the colors and sentiments you use, you could easily take this idea and make it a birthday card, a summer hello card, or so much more. Die cut a bunch of stars, and then make up a whole stack of cards at once!
I hope you had a fun and festive 4th of July weekend! Be sure to head to the IO blog and find a list of all the designers participating in Die Cut Obsession day.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
