Inspired by Stampin' Tips: 

  • DSC_1055 Of course when one thinks of Memorial Day, we all think red, white and blue and these colors definitely stand out with this holiday card.
  • USA letters can be found in the On Board Loads of Letters Chipboard Set. I simply painted the colors with white acrylic paint.
  • After the acrylic paint dried, I used my new Gold Smooch to spray the letters.
  • Stars #2 Original Die was used with my Big Shot to make all these great stars. There are four different size stars in this original die cut.
  • My touch of glam comes from White and Real Red grosgrain ribbon to create a stripe. I also used my Rhinestone Brads to add a real punch of pizazz to each star.
  • Can you believe that I didn't use any stamps or classic ink to make this card!
