Statue of Liberty Card

I CASEd this card from one I pinned on my Pinterest Board. You can see Karen Ladd's card here.

Card can be for 4th of July or any such Patriotic holiday.

Used Kraft americana cardstock.Used Tim Holtz stamps: Mini Blueprints 2 Statue of Liberty & Americana Silhouette word 'LIBERTY.' After stamping word 'LIBERTY' and part of other words on the Americana Silhouette I cut the 'LIBERTY' word out with scissors and cut the flag banner with scissors.

Embossed a strip of red cardstock with stars embossing folder. If you did not know already if you emboss over some already embossed part the embossing that was done over is lessened but in my case since it is behind the Tag it is not seen. I needed to emboss a longer piece of cardstock than the size of the embossing folder so I embossed one way, turned it around it & then embossed the other way with an area embossed over twice to match up the embossed stars.

Use a piece of gold foil cardstock on tag hole.
