Happy 4th of July!



Happy 4th of July to you all!  I decided to make a card for the Sentimental Sunday blog challenge which was to create a patriotic card using red, white, and blue, (or the colors of your country's flag).  The bonus was that we could also use the sketch provided which is shown in the photo below.  I made a card similar to this yesterday, but this is a different layout and I stamped the sentiment differently.

I randomly stamped the fireworks images all over my card stock and then I cut it out to fit the sketch.  I stamped and punched out the larger blue star and the smaller red star was simply punched out and I placed a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of thet star.  My star is placed on my card using dimensionals. 

To create the sentiment I needed to color part of it using my real red stampin up marker and stamp the 'happy 4th of' and then I cleaned my stamp, inked up the 'July' part of the image and then I stamped next to it.  In other words I needed the sentiment to be stamped across.  TIP-  To create the notch in the end of my sentiment card stock layer I simply used a 1" square punch- super easy!
