Technique Tuesday – Swirly Flag!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! This is another fabulous one just in time for 4th of July!!! Check out last week’s fabulous Red, White, and Blue creation too!

Swirly Flag,

Isn’t it beautiful?!?!?!?! I love a good Red, White, and Blue flag image! The Swirly Scribbles really gives the flag that perfect waving look too! I love it!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Big Shot, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Cardstock, Star Stamp

I started with a Whisper White card base. Then you will need 3 Real Red or Cherry Cobbler die cuts using the long wavy image in the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. You will want to keep all of the pieces that you pop out as well. Starting at the bottom of your card, adhere one of the red scribbles to your card with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. You don’t need to cover the entire back of the swirl but be sure to get the ends really well. The piece is longer than your card so you can either place it in the middle and trim both ends or place it to one side and trim the other side. You will then adhere the next red scribble above that one. If there is an open white spot between the 2 scribbles, this is where you will find one of the pieces that popped out of the thinlit that fits perfectly! See the 2 pieces in the black circles below!

Stars and Stripes,

With the 3rd red scribble, you will only need about half of it as the other half of the card will have the blue portion. For the stars, I took a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and placed the scribbles thinlit at the bottom of the cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot. This gave me the bottom curve. Then I did the same thing up higher to create the top curve. If you wanted the perfect spacing for 50 stars or a greeting, etc, you would measure out this piece in order to fit that. I pretty much create a piece that fit the card (eyeball it) and then stamped as many stars on it as possible. I used the star image from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set. There are lots of star images you can use from stamp sets, punches and framelits. It’s all up to you on how you would like it to look! I stamped the star in VersaMark Ink and added Silver Embossing Powder and heated it with the Heat Tool to melt. I added this piece to the card front once it cooled! There are lots of different ways you could do the stars portion. I even had a class on this card and one stamper used a Night of Navy scribble in the corner and it was super cute. I wish I would have snapped a picture of it!
