A Soldier's Tribute!

Hello and welcome back to my little blog. Im back to share my patriotic make for Memorial Day and my post at DRU's Inspirational Blog!  Check it out HERE!
This Soldier's Tribute card was created with some great patriotic dies...

Make your Die-Cuts in Silver Mirror, Red, White and Bue Cardstocks as shown below;
These die-cuts will then be adhered and layered together for dimension and depth.
Layer bottom dry embossed open-screen panel over blue CS and adhere the multi-layered star panel (this has been backed by red cardstock)

Your card will quickly start to form. Now place the adhered die-cuts over star panel to end-up with a patriotic collage type of a look like I have above!  Layering is so fun, dont you think?

On the Soldier's Tribute, the cardstock colors were slightly offset for interest.

The Statue of Liberty was die-cut in white and again from dbl sided adhesive sheet. This adhesive layer allows for addition of bling (CE Cosmic shimmer Iced Snow glitter was used here). It's very sparkly though not quite noticeable in this photo. 

The sentiment is from stash, and placed on Pierced Flags that are layered with foam tape.

Papers: Creative Expressions Silver Mirror Cardstock, Red White and Blue Cardstock
Card collage created with the following precision dies by Frantic Stamper;  Soldier's Tribute, Statue of Liberty, USA Map and Star Card Panel. Also Sue Wilson's Frames and Tags Pierced Flags.
