Inspired by the recent re-opening of the Statue of Liberty after super storm Sandy, I decided to feature her on a patriotic card using stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle. There are a bunch of great all American images and sentiments in the Patriotic Icons (#433) set, that can be used on cards and scrapbooking all year long.
The Statue of Liberty (#3507-433G) was stamped in Versamark (#99702), coated in Vanilla Ice embossing powder (#EP265), heat set, fussy cut and set aside. Light colored embossing on dark paper is a very striking look. If you haven't done the technique in a while, give it a try. I know that you will be pleased. I used Sticker Paper (#99558) and Liberty glitter (#G1026) to make my die cut star and added the sentiment (#3518-433B) to the center. My white cardstock was dry embossed, and embellished with washi tape, 1/4" Tear-iffic Tape (#SAT01) coated in more Liberty glitter and twine.
After adhering all the card stock together, I added my cut elements with some dimensional dots. Specific details can be found in my card gallery here.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you are enjoying the summer!
