God Bless America Card and Welcome to a New Design Team Member

Hi friends.  It's Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today.  We just celebrated Memorial Day yesterday here in the US and I couldn't resist just one more Patriotic themed card featuring fabulous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I'm also thrilled to introduce you to a new design team member here at Cheery Lynn Designs.  
Ginny from Polly's Paper Studio will be joining us in June.  I know you are going to love her style and I hope you'll join me in welcoming her.  She will be on with her first post on June 10th.  Welcome Ginny!

For my card, I printed out my digital sentiment and cut it with the smallest of the the Oval Stitch & Cut Lge Silver Stitch Dies.  I then layered it on red and blue leaving a small border on each layer.  I backed a piece of red cardstock with Stick It Adhesive and cut with the Chicken Wire Frame.  I then adhered that to a piece of white cardstock and trimmed it down to the desired size.  I then layered that on to red cardstock, then white cardstock and adhered it to my A2 size card base.
I kept my design very clean this time, meaning no fuzzy mulberry paper layers, no inking of flower petals or edges and just three bold colors.  Okay, I did sneak a little green in for the leaves, but I'm not counting that!  I love red, white and blue cards because the bold colors just make them POP.  This card could easily be a birthday or other occasion  card as well by switching out the sentiment.

My beautiful bi-color double-loop bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8" Red and Electric Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also ran a piece of the blue across the middle topped with some 3/8" White Diamond Satin Ribbon.
Cheery Lynn Dies Used:

I love all the different looks you can create with the Shasta Daisy die just by altering petal colors and inking (or not) some of the layers.  I will include a video tutorial below on how I made these fabulous flowers.
