Hello and Happy Independence Day to all of my American readers! My card today is not only a 4th of July card, but also a 90th birthday card for my Grandpa.
The background was done with my Cling Wrap stamping technique. (Find the tutorial with video HERE.) This tweed stamp usually gives a nice, crisp image. But with the technique, I get a distressed, grunge look.
The star balloons were die cut with star dies, then cutting the number die into it. I layered it over a white die cut star to make sure you could read the numbers easily. The bit of bakers twine finished them off nicely. The inside was decorated with stars and sweet sentiments.
Supplies: Hero Arts Tweed background stamps, Our Daily Bread Designs Shine on and Patriotic Pennants stamp sets, Darice Star dies, Hero Arts Classic Numbers dies, Carta Bella It’s a Celebration 6x6 paper pad, Hero Arts Red Royal and Navy inks.
I would love to enter this in Cards In Envy’s Twinkle Little Stars Challenge, and SimonSaysStamp’s Monday Challenge Red White and Blue and Crafty Hazelnut’s July Patterned Paper Challenge.
