Patriotic Page with Rhonda

Greetings and welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs blog!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog.

I made a patriotic page today featuring a photo of Mt. Rushmore that I took when we were on vacation this summer. There was something so patriotic and majestic about seeing the monument in person.


I started with an 8x8 piece of white cardstock and used Fancy Corners #4 on the corners. Next, I used the Scalloped Rectangle and aligned it to cut a 7x7" square. (This is one of the Reflections Boutique dies.) At the top I used a Victorian Romance Flourish as a hanger type of element in between my layers. Lace Heart Square is next.


I had some pieces left from my project last week, so you will see the Foliage Embossed white cardstock and French Lattice on top, tucked under the Southern Charm Valance on the right.


To anchor my photo I used the Polynesian Sails Oval, then layered a medium Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker with foam squares. The photo is then attached with foam squares. This gives me a lot of area to layer my cuts. On the bottom you'll see a snip of Sophia's Heart Border, another piece left over from a previous project. 

Layered on the right are the Quills and a Wheat cluster, topped with the Star and Birds of Earth and Sky. To the left of that is a Branch. There are Cloud cuts layered under the photo and one attached with foam squares.
