Announcing: "Pride" by Authentique Paper


Iconoclastic and traditional patterns are the hallmarks of this collection.  Easily identified as an Americana-based theme, the classic design of the papers make this line useable for any event. Inspired by bravery, dedication and the pursuit of happiness, the tea-stained look of the distress on the papers and sticker embellishments, make all types of projects created with Pride feel like an instant family heirloom. Perfect for honoring those who have served our country or capturing the carefree essence in our youth, Pride is a collection you don't want to miss. As with all Authentique Paper products, we are always Made in the U.S.A.! 


We couldn't limit this collection to 6 paper designs, we felt there were seven outstanding designs and we didn't want to eliminate one! So, seven patterned papers, printed on our signature heavy-weight textured cardstock are the foundation of our "Pride" collection.

Paper #1

"Dignity" 12x12 paper (Heirloom quilt and red newsprint)


Paper #2


"Unified" 12x12 paper (patterned circles and sheet music)


Paper #3

"Assemble" 12x12 paper (doily banners and ticking stripe)


Paper #4

"Privilege" 12x12 paper (vintage postcards & posters and mini dots)


Paper #5

"Amend" 12x12 paper (diagonal plaid and mini stars)


Paper #6

"Independence" 12x12 paper (military star pattern and classic stars)


Paper #7

"Triumph" 12x12 paper (crest & vine side design and mini fleur de lis)



Our 6x12 "Components" sticker is printed on our custom-made matte stock adhesive...which means the colors are better matched to the papers, and since they are not glossy, you can add ink with ease!


Our 6x6 "bundle" is always a must-have - reduced-scale designs allow for smaller projects and card-making.


The 12x12 "Details" sticker is jam-packed with icons, phrases and quotes - this item is truly a great value!


The collection kit for "Pride" is one the biggest and best variety packs we've ever offered! This is your chance to get the entire collection in one place!




If you weren't excited before, take a look at a couple of projects our fabulous design team put together! If you look closely, you'll see this line actually ISN'T just for Americans!

  5. My fave paper is "Assemble" The sticker sheets would be very useful for cards for "Operation Write Home". The patriotic colors are always good for masculine cards too. That's what I would use them for. The whole collection makes me want to sing "God Bless America".

  6. Oh my! Love the new patriotic collection! I'm a sucker for anything Red, White and Blue. Guess it complements having served in the Air Force for 20 years. Love this country! Perfect timing on the release. May is Military Appreciation Month with Memorial Day. Great products for cards and page layouts!

  9. I LOVE HOW PATRIOTIC IT IS!!!! That is what I love. I always send out Independence Day cards, and cards to some military officers I know and are related to. So these would get a lot of use in my house!

Okay its safe to say there isn't anything I don't like about this collection!

  12. There's just something about red, white and blue - what a great new collection! My husband is a decorated Vietnam veteran and I love making cards to take up to the VFW for his friends to give to their wives and families. Patriotic cards are my favorite to create as it fills me with such a sense of pride and humility.

  13. I adore this new collection! I find it very inspiring, patriotic in a beautiful and thankfully non-cheesy way(hard to find!), and very versatile! It will be perfect for Summer projects in particular for me, because while I love my country on the inside all the time, Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day always remind me to show it on the outside, too. These are also going to be great for more masculine projects for husband, dad, and brother :) I can't say enough great things about this set!

  59. There is so much to love about "Pride" and I'm not sure if I could list them all. The blend of colors and the sense of Patriotism that fills my heart, simply by looking at these combinations. I would hopefully create a few family scrapbook page layouts and I also plan on creating some cards for our injured veterans at our Veterans Hospitals.

    I really like the 'sheet music' as music has played such an important part of our heritage. Love this collection!
