Happy 4th of July


It is almost July and we will soon be celebrating the 4th. Time to pull out the Red, White and Blue for some cards. Thought the sketch from Cute Card Thursday was perfect for this card. I used stamps all from Verve's "American Hero" that I stamped on White CS and layered in Navy CS.....used a mat of Red CS that I embossed with stars and highlighted with Platinum Ink and all went together on a Navy Card base. Used Versamark and Gold EP on some of the stars that I stamped and finished with some shiny red bling. I put on a double layer of ribbon for some patriotic stripes.
Supplies:
Stamps: Verve "American Hero"
Inks: Memento Lady Bug, SU Night of Navy, Brilliance Platinum Planet
Assorted Pencils, Atyou Spica Pen Gold, Pilot Gold Marker
Ribbons: Red and White Stripe Grosgrain and Navy Satin from Stash
Red Rhinestones from Stash
Fiskars Embossing Plate
