A co-worker's son is at boot camp right now, so I created this with him in mind. Tried something new with this card too - paint! Julee Tilman did it on one of her cards recently and it literally took my breath away. I used it a bit differently, but still really like the way it turned out!
The white later and small oblong blue layer are both distressed on all edges. I embossed the blue layer with several different images - two stars from PTI's All Star Team, the polka dot star from PTI's anniversary set a year ago and the round star image is from All Star Team Additions.
I tore the red and blue papers, but didn't "worry" if they aligned or were just the right size. Ah...stepping out of my clean and straight lines. LOL I painted the blue layer with white paint and let it dry - just took a couple of minutes. Then I stamped the "Land of the Free" image with Versamark ink and dumped on some dark blue embossing powder. LOVE the way it looks. The blue paper is Bazzill so it's not a smooth surface to begin with. I smudged both the blue and red layer with Black Soot Distress ink, I think I'm really going to like the Black Soot ink. I just bought it this week!
I stamped and embossed the circle star image and punched out with a 1 1/4" circle punch. The main layers and round image were both mounted with dimensionals.
The lines on the white paper were made using a template and sponging on the red...again, I didn't worry about the lines being "perfect" in color. For the inside, I distressed a white panel, created two score lines at the bottom, stamped a row of stars & polka dots from All Star Team Additions in SU! Really Red, and "Be Your Best" in SU! Night of Navy.
