America the Beautiful

Hi everyone! I want to share a card I created for the upcoming 4th of July holiday.  I started out with a 4 1/2"x5 3/4" of8 lb Ivory Cardstock which I spritzed with the following: Rum Punch and True Turquoise Glimmer Mists and Polka Dot Pink Chalkboard Glimmer Mist. The Aqua Plain Jane Stained Glass I spattered and used a lid to make designs on the cardstock.


Once dry I embossed and rubbed a brown chalk ink over the raised images to bring out the words. Plus I was looking for a faded and time worn look.


I cut and folded the Navy and Kraft Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock to make a 6"x6" cardbase. Adhere a 2"x4" piece of  Red and White Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock to base. Also you can either adhered lace to the embossed image or if you have a "lace punch" you can punch from the 8 lb Ivory Cardstock.


Added pop dots and blue thread to the back of the embossed image and then adhere to the base of the card.


Next fussy cut the Statue of Liberty from the Bon Voyage on Ivory Cardstock. Spray a small amount of Monolith Chalkboard Glimmer Mist into a bowl. Add a little water and then paint the entire Statue of Liberty and once dry glue to the corner of the embossed image. Since I couldn't find the right sentiment for my card. I printed it from the computer. I distressed, cut both ends to create a banner, adhered on top of a strip of Red and White Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock and finished off with sequins and Dew Drops.


If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!
