Happy 4th of July!!!!
I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday weekend. May your marshmallows be sticky, your chocolate gooey and your fireworks sparkly!
Today's card begins with a half sheet of Always Artichoke. Over that, I layered a quarter sheet trimmed of Kraft.
The stripes on the flag are RIding Hood Red and Confetti Ivory strips about 3/4 inch wide. I cut several strips of each (This is my July card) and just dragged my Soft Suede ink pad across the top to give them the distressed, smudgy look. Then I cut them to fit and layered them on the cards. The blue square is Not Quite Navy. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede and stamped the ticket from Artifacts in White Craft. The star is stamped with Night of Navy on Confetti Ivory and hand trimmed with an antique brass brad in the center and a glue dot to hold it to the card. "Freedom and Liberty" are hand penned.
