Feeling Patriotic #tiedyeflag (video tutorial)

I am having a blast with the tie-dye technique I showcased here on May 27th. In case you haven't seen that video yet, I would watch it before you watch the video below. It gives a little more information on the technique. 

I love how the card above turned out! It is quite easy to do. The product list is included in the video below. 

Last year around this time, I posted the flag card below that I came up with using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. It was one of my "woke up in the morning with the idea" card. This happens to me quite often! To date, it is my most pinned card ever on Pinterest. It is still one of my favorites.

  1. OK, I absolutely love love love this card!!! Even without seeing the video. Patriotic cards are my favorites.
