Happy Memorial Day

Today's card features a new to me technique- Blends/Vellum technique.  I was super proud of the results.  I decided to use it on today's card for Memorial Day.

I cut a piece of Stampin' Up Vellum.  I used Dark Cherry Cobbler and Light Night of Navy Stampin' Blends.  I scribbled color in a random fashion all over the vellum.  I then used 91% Alcohol to water brush over each patch letting the color run.  I used my Stampin' Up Heat Tool to help the alcohol dry.  I adhered a panel of Basic White behind it to make the colors pop.

For the front of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set with Real Red ink on a strip of Basic White.  I punched the end of the strip with Stampin' Up Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.  I layered the strip with a strip of Night of Navy punched at the end as well.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the front.

I die cut some stars from Stampin' Up Stitched Star Die Set from Real Read and Night of Navy card stock.  I adhered them to the front of the card with liquid glue and Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I layered the card front to a panel of Real Red that I adhered to a Night of Navy card base.
I found the sentiment from SU Inspired Thoughts to be great for a hero that has served our country.  I stamped it in Night of Navy ink.  I adhered 3 of the stars to finish the inside off.
