MCT – Patriotic Theme Challenge


Hello everyone and welcome to another fun new MCT Challenge:  For today’s challenge we will doing a patriotic theme using a color palette AND a sketch!

Today’s card has a vintage look!  I used several MCT stamps and dies.  For the card base I used a retired SU bluish card stock. I stamped the script background from MCT “Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background” stamp set. From the same stamp set I used the widest watercolor stamp and stamped it several times to make the “flag”.  I distressed the edges with distress ink and a distress tool.  I die-cut several stars from “3 Star Stitched Dies” and the star die from the “All Around Holidays” stamp set.  To finish it I heat embossed the sentiment from “My Little Firecracker” stamp set.  I hope you like it! 🙂


Thanks for stopping by.  As always I love to hear your comments 🙂
