Spread the joy of the 4th of July by creating a beautiful and dimensional card in red, white and blue using StazOn Studio Glaze – the perfect product for gorgeous effects creating smooth glass like texture.
Time: 45 minutes + drying time
Stamp star image onto smooth white cardstock using VersaFine inkpad in Smokey Gray. Cut out the star and add some color using Memento ink to the background of the star. Leave to dry.
Once dry, fill in the dots on the stamped star using St. Valentine, Cotton White and Midnight Blue StazOn Studio Glaze. Leave the dots to dry.
On a sheet of acetate add 3 drops of StazOn Studio Glaze. Use a second sheet of acetate and place it on top of the drops. Move the acetate around to smudge the Glaze. Pull the sheets apart from each other – this motion causes the interesting ripple effect. Leave the acetate to dry completely.
Assemble a card using the colored acetate, a stenciled strip with stars as well as the stamped dotted star. Cover a toothpick in silver thread, washi tape or glitter for the stick of the star. I used a star stencil and added color using a Sponge Dauber with Memento Luxe inks in Nautical Blue and Love Letter. I decided to sew my acetate and strip for extra flare, but you could use a regular adhesive as well.
Add some color to chipboard letters using Studio Glaze. Leave them to dry thoroughly.
Adhere the colored chipboard letters to the card using GlazOn. Cover the letters in a layer of GlazOn as well for a nice smooth finish.
