A Birthday Card with Stand and Saltue


I love it when I get the opportunity to use the Cricut cartridge "Stand and Salute", it gives such dynamic die cuts. This is a special birthday card for a very patriotic young man, I wanted the patriotism implied not direct. All of the die cuts are from this one cartridge. The background paper for the flares is from "The Cutting Cafe" blue polka dots on white and then I sprayed it with the Copics Airbrush System. All colors are the Copic Markers and Airbrush. A little glitter on the flares. Overall size is 6"X6". For the sentiment block I sprayed with a journaling stencil to get the lines.




The inside has 18 stars in red white and blue and a sentiment. Hope everyone is ready for a great weekend. Happy Friday, Hugs
