Happy 4th of July


Hi everyone, Happy 4th of July! Hope you are enjoying the long holiday weekend.  As you can see I'm still stuck on using the large sentiments and created this card just so I could wish you all a Happy 4th of July papercrafting style! I paired the sentiment with digital paper from the Freedom Ain't Free digital kit by Summertime Designs.  Here is the blue digital sentiment I used on today's card.
My card base is Night Of Navy layered with PTI Vintage Cream then strips of digital paper.  The sentiment is printed on PTI Vintage Cream and layered on Night Of Navy cardstock.  The paper star is Real Red punched using the large star and Night Of Navy with the small star.  I finished the star with a silver metal star sticker and couldn't resist adding one in each of the other corners.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!


CREATIVE DESIGN:
  • Stamps: Digital Sentiment (Feline Creative)
  • Paper: Night Of Navy, Riding Hood Red, PTI Vintage Cream, Digital Paper (Summertime Designs, Freedom Ain't Free Digital Kit)
  • Ink: Epson Photo Printer R380
