Today, I'd like to share with you a card made using the Patriotic Girlfriends Set 827 from the new March Reveal.
To begin with, I stamped the image in the bottom left corner of the 5" x 5" white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. I took a 5" x 5" piece of Super Adhesive Sheet and using a Lifestyle Nesting Circle Die I cut out the bottom corner of the square. This was stuck down on to the top of the cardstock with the stamped image and then lines were cut with an exacto knife lightly through the protective backing but not through the cardstock. Every third strip of protective backing was removed and Pinkerbell Glitter was applied.
Each strip to the right was then exposed and applied with Cloud Nine. Then Rapture Blue was applied to give us the Red, White and Blue!
The girls were then colored in with Copics. America was stamped on top of the white strip of glitter in Memento Tuxedo Black and then was colored on top of the glitter with Copics.
Next I took a Heidi Swapp Star stencil and stenciled with Nuvo Embellishment Mousses, Blue Cornflower and Peony Pink. This is very fast drying, so I just did some and went back when dry and filled in the spaces.
Now I had both stars and stripes!
I took a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of corrugated blue cardstock and edged it with the Peony Pink Mousse.
The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Mulberry, this is one of the fine detailed Tuscan powders. It was hand cut into a banner shape and was backed with the same blue used in the base layers. A piece of a skewer was attached to the back of the flag with Tear-ific Tape and then it was attached to the card front with mounting tape.
The entire card front was attached to a base layer of glossy white cardstock to finish off the card.
