It goes without saying (but I will say it anyway) most challenges this week have a patriotic theme.  I know I plan to submit this oversized card to a couple of them.  Then I am going to frame it and hang it in my studio! 

Have a Safe and Happy Fourth of July.

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my work...to being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!

  1. Wow, is this a stunning card….I love the Declaration of Independece spotlighted (where did you get this?) and the LO of your design is gorgeous. I would frame it , too!! No giving this one away. Thanks so much for playing at Sugar Creek Hollow this week.

      Thanks, Patti,

      I just googled Declaration of Independence Text. I saved the file and opened it in PS, decreased the image size, printed it on vellum and used antique linen and old paper distress ink to get the aged paper look.

      I love playing at SCH!!!
