I used a new stencil and my new stencil brushes to make the blue and green panels. Once I'd finished brushing ink onto them, I stamped some of the splatters from Distressed Patterns using silver ink before cutting them to size.. My card base is 7" x 4" and I adhered the blue panels top and bottom, leaving a blank spot in the middle. The green panel was matted onto a black backing and the sentiment was white-embossed onto a strip die-cut with a die from Blueprints 6. For tha flag, I used a strip of vellum and clear-embossed the silver splatters to tie it into the rest of the card. I then stitched the vellum and the blue panels onto the card base.
The words were die-cut from Little Letters dies and positioned in the bottom right corner of the green panel - and yes the 'love' is slightly crooked :)
That pretty much sums up my card. Thanks for visiting and I hope my dad will like this.
