Freedom Card

Made this Patriotic card using a stencil with spackling paste for the stars on white foam. Discovered that after die cutting scallop piece the stenciled stars were melded into the foam instead of being on top of the surface due to the Sizzix acryllic plates pressing down on the stars. Used a sketch which you can see below. Did some faux stitching using a silver (looks close to gray color) gel pen. Used Cricut. Added homemade sequins.
