USA Birthday Card!

Here is an easy card you can make for an enlisted friend or family member or for Operation Write Home:

DCF 1.0

I made this card for my niece’s husband who is leaving for basic training, it was also his birthday. I built it on a kraft cardbase, tore a book page and sprayed it with my homemade shimmer spray and layered an embossed blue panel that I glided a white Gel Stick on top to bring out the design. I stamped a never before inked Statue of Liberty and colored it with Gel Sticks. Added a few eyelets and a Happy Birthday sentiment and that was it! Easy peasy! Have a great Monday everyone and til next time happy crafting!

  6. Hi Lindsey…love this card! Can you tell me if the white gel stick you used dries quickly? I have the cheaper Faber Castell gel sticks…they seem to stay tacky and will smear for a long time after my card is completed. Am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks so much for sharing your time and talent with all of us 🙂

    • Hi Jan, I used the cheap gel stick version, I did not use it heavy but it dried quickly, probably your paper was printed or coated so that made it so the gel stick could not absorb, it will not dry on a non porous surface.

      • Wow…quick reply 🙂 And that makes perfect sense. I’m sure my paper is coated. Thanks for your help!
