Happy Birthday, AMERICA!! Happy Fourth of July Everyone!!

Hello, my friends, I hope you are all well!

Today’s card is in celebration of Fourth of July it includes a couple different techniques including water coloring using an aqua painter heat embossing with White embossing powder Die cutting and the use of Vellum. I created today’s card with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set as well as the Well Written Dies.

The card base is Night of Navy measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, the next layer is a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″, the top layer is a piece of Watercolor Paper measuring 5″ x 3 3/4

Use the piece of Watercolor Paper and creative background with your Aqua Painter Real Red and Night of Navy ink I created the color background on an angle to give it some added interest. Now, this layer needs to dry you could use your heat tool to dry quickly or lay it flat with a large acrylic block or something heavy on top.

Once your watercolored background is dry use the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set and Versamark ink to stamp your images across your watercolored background, with White embossing powder and your heat tool emboss your images.

Now I created the Vellum piece using in the Stitched Nested it Dies third from the smallest and cut out the Vellum label. Using three small scrap pieces of Real Red Whisper White and Night of Navy and the Well Written Dies, I die cut the word “hooray” in the three different colors. Apply a  small amount of glue and attached to your vellum label left to right with a step-down effect. 


Place two glue dots on the opposing ends Of your Vellum label attached to your watercolored embossed background, I then attached to Clear Faceted Gems over the glue dots so they would not be seen. ( Since Vellum is see through you have to be careful not to see the glue you are adhering it with)  Now I took a piece of Real Red Cotton Ribbon attached it to the bottom and added some White Bakers Twine and a little bow. Glue down this layer to your Whisper White layer then attach to your card base.

Your card is now completed patriotic themed for Fourth of July I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope I have inspired you!
