Countdown to Confetti - Because of the Brave



Welcome to the third and final day of Reverse Confetti's June release countdown! Today's featured set is Because of the Brave, a powerful patriotic sentiment set. The Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts die set is a natural companion to Because of the Brave, and I've also incorporated the Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die into today's project.

All of the new products will be available at midnight tonight in the Reverse Confetti store.
Join us again tomorrow for our new release blog hop!





I've stamped my sentiment onto a navy blue pinked edge circle (from the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts set) and heat embossed in white. I layered this sentiment panel over a triple-stacked white Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die-cut, and then onto a white card base for a clean, crisp white-on-white look. I trimmed down the cover panels slightly so that the card base would act as a mat for the cover panels. The stitched star die-cuts are from the Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts set. Last I added some wood veneer star accents.



Stamps: Because of the Brave

Confetti Cuts Dies: Sunburst Cover Panel, Seeing Stars,  Flowers for Mom

Ink: Versamark

Paper: white, navy blue, medium blue, and red card stock

Other: white embossing powder, foam adhesive, wood veneer stars

Although this sentiment reflects the USA National Anthem, it's 1 that anyone can use for the brave men and women keeping their country free. I'm in the UK. Love it and the other stamps on the sheet. All very useable.
