Alrighty. That being said, I actually do have something to post today. It's a little late, but it is the cards I made for family and friends for July 4th. I love how these turned out...and they were a blast to make. Simple and easy!
Supplies: Sizzix star die, Studio G July 4th Stamps, Marvy 2 1/2" Scallop Punch, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, 3D dots, colored pencils, gold gel pen, and red chalk ink pad. Blue and White cardstock
This was so easy to make once I got a system going! I cut the 2 1/2" scalloped circles out of blue cardstock, cut the stars out of white cardstock using my cuttlebug and Sizzix die, and then embossed the stars. I did that after I stamped the insides of all the cards. On the firecracker, I used a gold gel pen on the fuse, and colored in the sentiment with colored pencils.
I also inked the edges of the card front with the red chalk ink that I used on the firecracker stamp. And I didn't take a picture of it, but I stamped an American flag on the front of each envelope.
Then, I just put it all together! So simple, and so fun! Thanks for looking!
