I usually never make cards for the 4th of July so I don't have one of those to share with you but I do have a birthday card for my nephews new wife. I tired water coloring with my distress markers again on watercolor paper. I have been noticing a few cards that are using a die to give the look of the old Polaroid camera picture, I used two dies from spellbinders and mounted the image behind it.
Art Impressions -- Birdhouse neighborhood stamp, colored with distress markers
Spellbinders -- classic square lg and A2 matting basics A dies
My mind's eye -- Sweet thing paper
Elizabeth craft designs -- Happy Birthday die
EK success -- flower punches, that have been shaped with stylus
Recollections -- wooden bird
Stickles -- Vintage photo
We didn't end up going to fireworks last year it was just too hot, but this year is just perfect so we will be heading to them this evening, already had our cook out, hopefully will have some fun time card making before we go :)
Hope your day is going well and you enjoy celebrating this country that God has blessed us with.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know what you think of my card,
