God Bless the USA – by Deb Saaranen

The 4th of July will be here before we know it. I have no idea where May even went. Poof, it was gone and here we are well into June already. Deb created a wonderfully refreshing and patriotic card for us today using our NEW Patriotic Sentiments clear stamp set and some small die cut stars that she did wonders with! Take a look:

I {{{LOVE}}} all the texture Deb created on this card.

The card base is a textured cardstock.

The background was created with a stencil, embossing paste and gesso on top.

Deb used Distress Oxide Reinkers to color the embossing paste. She then stenciled the paper with the colored embossing paste, and once dried she cut the stars – STUNNING!
