Doodle Pantry Citter Parade


Happy Flag Day!  

I have a patriotic card to share with you from the Doodle Pantry. The name of this digital stamp set is Critter Parade and these cute little ants are celebrating! 

To make my card I used a Spellbinders Grand Labels 4 die as the body of the card.  I embossed it with a 5 X 7 Cuttlebug embossing folder, it's kind of hard to see in the picture though.  

I printed a piece of digital paper from the new Doodle Pantry Stars & Stripes digital paper pack and cut it out with a smaller Labels 4 die.  The parade of ants were printed on Mohawk Bright white and cut out with a Spellbinders long narrow rectangle die & matted with the long narrow scalloped die to match.  The "celebrate" sentiment comes separately in the digital stamp set, I used the png files so I could layer it onto the flag.  I added a strip of Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue and put my card together.  It "needed" something else so made a little star embellishment using a Spellbinders star die, a star punch, button & a piece of crochet thread and it felt done.
