Happy Memorial Day America!  This is a day to celebrate our freedom, our patriotism and our wonderful country.

I’m Jennifer Snyder and I am celebrating American pride with just a few of the many patriotic themed products from Creative Embellishments.  They have stamps, stencils, shaker sets, shaker pieces, home decor and chipboard accents to help celebrate your love of America.

Creative Embellishments – Eagle in Flag Rubber Stamp is the featured focal point of both cards today, accented with Creative Embellishments – Stars and Stripes Balloon chipboard and Creative Embellishments 4th of July ATC Coin set.

The chipboard pieces have all been heat embossed using Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing powder.  After embossing, I backed each of the chipboard pieces with cardstock to make them pop from the page.


The Creative Embellishments – Eagle in Flag Rubber Stamp was stamped and colored using Distress Inks.   Nothing too fancy because I wanted the stamped image to be the star of the show.  I am also giving the cards to men so I needed to tone down the glitz and focus on the message/intent of the card.  My son really doesn’t need a bow or florals on the card, no matter how much I wanted to add them..oh and I really wanted to keep on gussying.

Simple fact – cards don’t always need a lot of embellishing.


Thanks for stopping here today.  Enjoy your Memorial Day and God Bless America.
