This is my last post for Cuttin' & Stampin' DT. I want to thank Tammy for the wonderful DT experience.

Created this card using a Patriotic theme. Used Paper Smooches Circle of Honor stamp set and Doodlebug Patriotic paper & embellishments. Created the Diagonal Frame, the center piece, with inspiration from Frenchie of Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie. Please click here to see how to make the Diagonal Frame. The pilot in me favorite part is the biplane embellishment inside the Fancy Fold part. For embossed stars & stars with stripes I used an embossing folder & embossing border. Stamped the words 'atten-shun' multiple times. Stamped the Eagle, fussy cut it out & mounted it on a Spellbinder Oval using the Doodlebug Patriotic red dotted paper. Colored Eagle with markers. Added stickles & twine to the Eagle. Added washi tape to top. Used a piece of Doodlebug Patriotic paper to finish off the inside of the car. Stamped a PS sentiment on inside using 3 different embossing powders mixed together for patriotic colors red/white/blue.
