It’s President’s Day in the US, which is a Federal Holiday celebrating the office of the presidency of the US, but we used to have two separate holidays in February, for President Washington’s and President Lincoln’s birthdays both in February. Since 1869 we have celebrated Washington’s Birthday on th day, February 22nd. But in 1971 it got changed to the 3rd Monday in February and in most states it’s consolidated into one day to celebrate all the Presidents.
So it’s in that spirit that I’m posting this sample from Creativation celebrating the spirit of liberty from which the US Presidency was born.
I used several of Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations dies on this card and papers from the Correspondence Paper Stash, but it's a pretty straight forward design.

The dies I used are the Rosette Set #662691, Stacked Arches #662692, and Cut Out Script #662709. All of these dies are what I consider staple dies. Staple dies are the ones that I can use over and over on a variety of crafts, from card making to scrapbooking layouts or mini books or tags or mixed media, so I always put them on my wish list. You just can't go wrong with staple dies.
