Shimmering Stars & Stripes

I love red and blue, I love America - so when I have the chance to create something that is so close to my heart I really am in crafting heaven. This card celebrates my love for this amazing country and some real crafting goodness all thrown into one gorgeous themed card.


Directions:

5. While the iridescent medium is still wet, lightly sprinkle navy blue glitter on top and let dry completely.
6. Adhere the blue star to the front of your card and stamp sentiment in Versafine Vintage Sepia and trim smaller.
7. Add decorative sewing using a sewing machine to the star.
8. Add stamped sentiment, button and scattered gold confetti stars to finish off your card.
