This artist trading card is for a US Flag Grand Old Flag Artist Trading Cardthemed swap.

  1. The stiff card I am using as the based is repurposed packaging.
  2. I modified this Silhouette file: removed the interior and used the negative.  I cut this out of standard white cardstock.  I choose the donkey to represent US politics.
  3. Using the iris folding technique I placed strips straight across the donkey.  No iris.  I though this would mimic the flag better.
  4. I used two papers: gray with blue stars bordered with white, and red.
  5. I distressed the white cardstock with barn door (red).
