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.
