Patriotic Viva Las Vegastamps!

The 4th of July is fast approaching...

We will all be celebrating with family gatherings, company picnics and awesome fireworks shows!  Here is a great card to use as an invitation to your gathering!

Here is a card using Statue of Everything # 4525

Using the Scor-pal create a rosette for the card.  This one is made from a one inch x 12 inch strip of paper.

Stamp Statue of Everything # 4525 and fussy cut the image, then color with Tim Holtz Distress MarkersTim Holtz Set of 37 Distress Markers are on sale for $89.60! 

A $30.00 savings!

To give the image a heavy glossy look, I used the Viva Las Vegastamps Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder. There are three layers of VLVS! High Gloss Embossing Powder on the image of Statue of Everything # 4525. Be sure to let the powder cool a minute before applying the next.  

Here you can see the Viva Las Vegastamps Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder.  The layers of embossing powder makes the piece sturdy. 

Use Viva Las Vegastamps Miracle Tape to adhere the pattern paper card stock and rosette to the base card. Attach the Statue of Everything # 4525 with foam tape under the lower half of the image.

I love the rustic, patriotic colors in this one. This should be framed...not mailed!

I love the vintage feel of this card. The stripes in the paper really made a neat looking rosette. Love the image, too. Great job!
