Happy 4th of July to my American friends!
In honor of the red, white and blue I have a patriotic style card with a greeting that's perfect for anytime. This design is super versatile and the color combination can be changed up to fit any country and/or occasion!
I used the SSS Stars Parade Die to create an inlay die cut design. I wanted brush strokes coming down from the star border and used the Avery Elle Brushed Stamp Set and four colors of ink (MFT Hybrid Wild Cherry, SSS Fog, SSS Blue Violet and SSS Surf Blue) that coordinate with the Doodlebug Patriotic Parade and Stars & Stripes 6x6 paper pads.
I love, love, love the SSS Lots of Stars Stamp Set and added a scattering of stamped tiny, tiny stars in the same colors of ink as the brush strokes. The stars help break up the white space at the top of the card and coordinate so well with the SSS Stars Parade Die.
I stamped the greeting from the Hero Arts Written In the Stars in Versamark and embossed it with silver embossing powder.
