Collegiate Card Series Day 2: Stacked Flag Layout

Hey, everyone!

For the second day of my collegiate card series, I'm giving you a look at a new layout I've been using lately. 

This layout features four rounded corners. I didn't want the corners to be too deeply rounded, so I used the 1/4" rounder by We R Memory Keepers. You could use the 1/2", but I don't think it would look as good with the flags being so close to the upper right corner.

The polka dot paper takes up about 4". I took a strip of the solid paper I knew I would be using in the flags and adhered it behind the patterned sheet. I added faux stitching to this strip with a white gel pen, but twine or a stamped line would look great here, too. 

The solid flags were embossed with embossing folders by We R Memory Keepers. I wanted to use the same solid I used for the strip and also the color I used for the card base. 

For the UGA & Auburn cards, I used my favorite thinking of you stamp by Hero Arts. The UGA card was stamped with Versafine black pigment ink, and the Auburn card was embossed with Ranger's Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

For the LSU card, I used a thank you stamp by Simon Says Stamp and embossed it with Ranger's Liquid Platinum powder.

Instead of stacking 3 flags, I added faux stitching around a flag cut out of my solid pattern. I then cut a small rectangle to place on top of it and rounded the bottom corners. I punched a heart out of the same yellow paper I used elsewhere in the card. The heart was coated with a thick layer of Ranger's Glossy Accents to give it some dimension

I hope you enjoyed the flags on these cards! Thanks for visiting my blog! If you would like to see other collegiate cards I have made, visit my Day 1 blog post or head over to my Instagram or YouTube channel.
