Red White and Blue Country Wheelbarrow
Hello, Friends! This Red White and Blue Country Wheelbarrow reminds us that we are coming up on some of my favorite summer holidays. Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day will be here before we know it! So I broke out my patriotic Really Reasonable Ribbon and Photoplay Paper Land That I Love collection to dress up this adorable Spellbinders Country Road Wheelbarrow.
This 5 1/2″ square greeting card is all about the stars and stripes! RRR Striped Satin Ribbon provides a beautiful border above and below the Country Wheelbarrow. I’ve filled it with patriotic flowers and foliage die cut with the Country Roads Garden Builder set. Airmail Baker’s Twine Bows add a soft country finish beneath Deep Red Cherry Blossoms and Blue Cottage Roses.
TIP: Fussy cut the floral cluster and flags from the Photoplay Uncle Sam hat 3×4 image. Then tuck it behind the wheelbarrow to add another layer of depth and dimension to the card design.
A Peek Inside
Don’t you love these beautiful papers? Red white and blue always looks phenomenal in a project!
TIP: Add ribbon on top of the pocket to create a festive border. Secure the ribbon with 1/4″ Scor-Tape for a quick and easy finish.
I’m proud to be an American, so I always look forward to creating festive patriotic projects at this time of year! No matter what country you are from, you should be proud of your nation, display its colors and celebrate your heritage.
I hope I shared some tips and tricks you can use in your next crafty adventure!
