Patriotic Card and Layout

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  Hope you have had a safe and enjoyable weekend! I'm here today to share two patriotic projects I did in honor of the holiday!   First up, I used the Half Scallop Send It Clear Card and colored the acrylic pieces with Red Pepper Alcohol Ink from Ranger.  



After covering my card with patterned paper, I added a rosette and a Clear Shape Small Star in the center.  I used Art Anthology's Dimension Crystal in Blizzard to create a border around the edge of the star. 


On the left flap of my card, I used the 12 Inch Brick Wall Mascil and misted over the top with Dylusions in White Linen to create this fun effect. 



Here is a peek at the inside of my card:


Next up is a layout I created using the 12x12 Acrylic Sheet and another Clear Shape Small Star.


This time, I colored my star with alcohol ink to give it dimension. I also placed a white doily behind so the red would pop out even more!
