Liberty!



I want to share my appreciation that I have for all the wonderful men and women that serve for our freedoms. Thank you! 




I made a layout in Red, White and Blue!  The heading is "Liberty" and it features the Statue of Liberty, Fireworks and Stars & Stripes! 

I made some embellishments using red stitched ribbon, brads and rhinestones.  I also added a hat pin with crystal beads for additonal bling!


I used the Stand and Salute cartridge for this layout.  On the dark blue firework cut, I used silver metallic ink and sparkling embossing powder.  It has a lot of shine and bling.  It really shimmers as the light hits it.   

Using red and white striped ribbon, I created folds and used rhinestone brads and adhered it to the bottom of the layout.  It is reminescent of the flag's stripes especially with the lace star background against the white cardstock.  


The word "Liberty" was cut out in dark blue using the shadow feature.  I also cut out the word 'Liberty' in red and white layering them over the shadow.  By layering it with pop dots, it gives it great dimension. 

I cut out a star frame to showcase the picture from 4th of July in white.  Using pigment dark red ink and clear embossing powder, I embossed "Those who reach, touch the stars."

Lady Liberty was cut out in red.  By using pigment dark red ink and sparkling embossing powder it highlighted her cuts and added shimmer.  She was also cut out in shadow using dark blue cardstock. 



Please take a moment to send a thank you to our men and women currently serving as well as our veterans and all their families.  Thank you for our freedoms and protecting us so that our babies can live in a safe America!

God Bless America!
