Decided to make a Independence Day card.
Don't have many Independence stamps.
That means I have to reach for some creativity.
3 things about this card
1. I used the SU! stripe embossing folder, used VersaMark
and embossed with red glitter embossing powder.
2. I stamped on the satin ribbon and used
red and blue Gelly Roll pens to color the letters
3. I used a Hawaiian quilt punch that I just had to have.
That was several years ago.
First time I used it!
The picture doesn't do it justice.
The star is silver glitter CS.
The red stripes are glittery and very shiney.
The rhinestones on the quilt squares are red.
BTW, embossing/glitter powder is everywhere!
