Patriotic Birthday Card with Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! Dropping by with a look at a birthday card I made recently for a special request for a friend. Guy cards are always the HARDEST - but this one came together pretty well with the theme request she gave me of the American Flag. I went a little abstract, but ran with that theme, and this is what I came up with using a variety of Simon Says Stamp and Tim Holtz products:

I started off with some kraft cardstock and my Tim Holtz Rays Layering Stencil with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink. Over the top of that, I added some stars using Simon Says Stamp Falling Stars Stencil and some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. I added so distress ink blending around the edges for a more vintage feel using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. Finished off with a good splatter of white paint over the top, and set that panel aside to dry.

Next, I used the Simon Says Stamp You Wafer Die to die cut the big you out of white cardstock, then heat embossed a coordinating sentiment from Simon Says Stamp You Matter Stamp Set on a strip of black cardstock. Adhered those on my finished panel, then adhered the entire thing on a kraft cardbase!
