Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop



Welcome to my Blog!
Here is my missing you card.

I used my Cuttlebug for the background paper 
(cut at 3 7/8" x 5 3/8")
I embossed the same pattern in yellow 
and cut out one star for the embellishment.
While digging in my scrap box I found the red piece of cardstock 
already "crinkled" (using SU tool) and cut it to 3 7/8" by 1 3/4".  
The card base and all of the white edges of cardstock were inked in black. The stamp is a dollar find from Michael's. I added the yellow star brads and white Puffy paint to finish off the card.
Thank you for hopping along today. -Yvette (Cre8tiveVet)
