July 4th card, Stampin’ Up

Hi stampers!! It’s almost that time: cookouts, fireworks, parades…..I really love the Americana of the 4th of July. Makes me feel so proud to live where we are F R E E to be what and whomever we want to be ! Honestly, whenever I create or think about a 4th card, I cannot but help sing patriotic songs in my head…..Does that happen to anyone else?!?


I have had this idea in my head for several months now……I really fell in love with the Lucky Stars embossing folder, so much so, that I really wracked my brains on how to make it into a flag card!!! I will spare you all of my sad reject cards, BUT then I saw the new Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. Like a bolt out of the blue, it hit me. I could actually make it into a “Flag Card”. So I positioned the Lucky Stars folder on the top corner of the Whisper White card stock, went over it in Night of Navy, then added Real Red “stripes” from the Swirly Scribbles set. SO DARN CUTE!! I also used the Bunch of Banners framelits, which I stamped in Night of Navy as well, then hand wrote in the “America the Beautiful” words. It really turned out so much more beautiful than it was in my head. I added some White Chalk marker to the debossed stars, and topped them with a little Wink of Stella.
