I went ‘stars & stripes’ with my inspiration..



1. Ink flag stamp with red and blue distress ink carefully, stamp onto center of card. Coat with clear embossing powder and heat set.

2. On a separate sheet of paper, stamp USA with any ink (embossing or distress), then coat with black embossing powder, heat set, and cut out the letters.

3. Rub the background with some gathered twigs distress ink and let it dry for a minute. Then stamp with perfect medium (star stamp) several times, and brush sunflower sparkle perfect pearls over to add a subtle sparkle!

4. Finish the card by edging with blue ink, adding the “USA” with foam adhesive, and sticking the stars and words onto the card.
