Today I’m sharing a clean and simple patriotic card made using the newly released Rubbernecker USA Uncle Sam Set.  I love creating cards with brightly colored images on an all white background.  The hat and rockets really pop against the white and the crimped white layer adds texture and interest to the layout.  Insert a patriotic sentiment inside and you’ve got the perfect Fourth of July holiday card.

The Fourth of July holiday is almost here and nothing is more impressive than a clean and simple patriotic card done in red, white and blue.

The Clean and Simple Card Base

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Use red, white and blue cardstock to cut the layers for the hat.
  • Crimp the white layer and attach it to the red layer using ATG adhesive. 
  • Attach the white and red layers to the blue layer using ATG adhesive.
  • Use ATG adhesive to attach the red,white and blue layers to the card base.
  • Note:  Most people have either gotten rid of their crimpers or have no idea where they are in their craft room.  I love using mine and keep them close at hand in a draw next to my design table. They can be used to add dimension like on my card today but they are also perfect to use on drapes or blinds for your window cards. Check out this link to see lots of projects using my straight and wave crimpers. 

Uncle Sam's hat and rockets are perfect images to use for a clean and simple patriotic card.

The Patriotic Hat and Rockets

  • Cut the hat and rockets using red,white and clue cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces for each piece and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the hat and rockets and attach them to the card base.

Celebrate the Fourth of July with a red, white and blue clean and simple patriotic card.
