Dual Citizenship




Susan at Simplicity is challenging us to make a one layer card that celebrates your heritage. One layer cards are seriously hard... I had to make 3 before I decided I was done playing, and the one I like best isn't even a one layer card! But I was trying to make it work as a one layer card... it just didn't work. So, right, back to the theme. I am American, but recently got New Zealand citizenship as well, so I thought I should make a card that celebrated my dual status. Not an easy thing to do on a one layer card, and Susan even sent me an email suggestion on how to do it, perhaps that's cheating? For Fun Challenges is also running a similar themed challenge, so I'll enter the card in that contest too.

Materials: 1st card, Greener Pastures nz stamp, Fiskars alphabet stamp set, Fiskars rotary scallop cuter, Carl Corner punch
2nd card, Green ribbon, Inkadinkado frame, Greener Pastures NZ stamp, Carl Kiwi punch, Versacolor green ink, Stampin Up Black ink
3rd card, Inkadinkado frame, Studio G alphabet stamps, Making Memories Red wagon sticker

Not cheating at all in my book when you get advice from a wonderfully talented lady like Susan. I'm thinking these cards are great, and a tad bit jealous that you've gotten to experience dual citizenship.
