Well, ever since I got the Beautiful World Collection by Catherine Pooler I have been wanting to work with the GeoBuilders set in making a card. So when the Double D's Blog Challenge popped up in my inbox with a support our troops theme I decided to use that set and a sentiment from another stamp set in the collection called Sugar Pea Designs Enchanted Garden to join in on the fun. With Memorial Day coming up soon I can see this being a nice way to thank our military past and present and I think this would also work well for the Fourth of July too! Just add a different sentiment.
I stamped the builders design on the card and did it with a red followed by a blue line. I followed this pattern until about a third of the way up the white base card. As I built it up it created a gorgeous design pattern. I also added a strip of denim blue card stock and over that I added a red and white ribbon using the Cheery Lynn Designs Allison's Ribbon die. The sentiment was stamped first in the denim blue and then I over stamped it again with cheery red ink which are both from the Gina K. Designs line.
The finishing touch was to add three blue star rhinestones around the sentiment and also some red rhinestones at the top of the builders block design.
I can see a lot of different options for a quick and easy note card with the builders set. And, one can vary the colors for a unique look each time.
Well, between a lot of phone calls today I managed to get one card done at least. I hope your day is turning out to be a fantastic one too!
Take care and God bless,
