Come share my love of paper crafting and card making.

Here is a card I made for in honor of the 4th of July. The card is 4 1/2" X 6" white card base. Each layer was cut 1/4" smaller then the previous layer. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Summer Dreams paper stack and reminded me of fireworks. The stars are from the Home Decor cartridge. The single stars are from the same cut I used my Gypsy and the hide contour feature to hide the larger stars and just cut the single smaller one. The word Celebrate is from the Wild Card cartridge. Again I used my Gypsy to create a small shadow for the phrase. I spritzed everything with Pearl glimmer mist. I did learn a lesson here and that is the glimmer mist spray settles into the crevices of the texture paper. The texture on this paper seems a little more pronounced and the glimmer mist really settled. I got the shimmer I wanted but not as happy with the frosted look it ended up with. Overall I am pleased with the card. I do hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th celebration tomorrow! Thanks for looking.
