Hero's Card and a Blog Hop

    I made a pop-up card featuring the Artistic Outpost  stamp plate Hero. This is my take on the Americana theme. I started off with some Tim Holtz paper. I used distress paints and stamping in the background. I layered a few stamped images and such. I tried to keep the front simple.
   For the inside background I used a star stencil and layed down molding paste. I then painted over the background with distress paints. I used a pop-up die cut and layered a few stamped pieces on top and then my main stamped image. I love this cute little boy saluting.

  • What a cool card- love the front cover with the stars showing through, but love the inside with the hearts in embossing paste and the pop up soldier in full salute. Awesome!

  • Very cool effect of the mixed colors on the inside and the layered stars. Beautiful card inside and out!

  • Fabulous, Kate. I especially love the front – the designer paper is perfect and I have always loved that image of Rosie the Riveter – such an incredible part of American history and totally perfect to depict Americana! The scrap of cardboard and rosette with the HERO stamp make such a cool element. Super take on this month’s hop theme!

  • Wow, love this, inside and out! The ahhhh I got when I saw the card open!, wonderful Americana feel.

  • Kate, you surely covered the “American” theme all the way! Love all the texture and how fabulous the little soldier is! Have fun!

  • Fantastic… love the muted tones of the outside and how it opens up to a real “wow” of an interior with those vivid blues and greens and the adorable boy soldier – a great card!
