Create levels of dimension on the stamped American flag image with layers of die cut stars. The Needle-tipped Applicator filled with Bookbinding Glue made quick work of the assembly process.

Die Cut Stars Card

Add color to the flag stamp with Red and Blue Gelatos.

Spritz the stamp with water.

Stamp the image onto a piece of watercolor or mixed media paper. Allow the panel to dry completely before moving onto the next step.

Lay three different sizes of star thinlit (Sizzix) dies onto the stamped image and run through a die cutting machine. Repeat this step with a white panel. Set the stamped flag panel aside to create the card.

Make multiple star die cuts (eight small, four medium, and three large) with Vintage Americana Blue panels.

Laminate several layers of stars together with Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator.

Repeat this step with all of the star shapes.

Add three star image stamps to an acrylic block, add Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch ink, and stamp onto a 4x5.25" Blue panel in a repeated pattern. Lightly mist the stamped images with water to activate the Oxide ink.

Adhere a layered Red and white anchor strip to the stamped panel and add to the front of a 4.25x5.5" white folded card base.

Trim the die cut flag panel and layer onto a Red mat. Glue each of the star shapes into the openings on the flag panel.

Add the Happy 4th sentiment to the flag and adhere the panel to the card.
