For the CAS challenge to show your patriotism and the technique challenge to use shaving cream (and make your card smell nice!)
I tried various papers with this technique- Whisper White, glossy, shimmer white and Ranger specialty stamping paper. This last one was my favorite. It held up really well and took the ink the best.
I softened the look of it with a piece of vellum that was gold embossed with fireworks and our Statue of Liberty. I have made the climb to the top of this statue a few times and it is really spectacular. If you ever get a chance, visit her and Ellis Island. It is an emotionally moving experience.
God Bless all nations with peace and prosperity! Have a happy and safe holiday, y'all.
