Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a 4th of July card featuring our Flag & Hat Brads and Patriotic Enamel Stars! You know me and fun folds… I ran across my own zig-zag template while I was looking through my tutorial files for something else, and decided it would be perfect for this card! I went one step further on this one and die cut two round apertures to see the fireworks through, which I thought was a fun touch!
I cut the card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock, two narrow embellishing strips from CutCardStock Basis Blue cardstock, and layering panels from assorted coordinated patriotic papers. Using a Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers die, I die cut circular apertures into the first and second sections. I stamped the fireworks on one of the negative space circular die cuts and adhered it to the third section to be seen through the apertures. I stamped the main sentiment in red ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, cut it with a Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers die and adhered it along the top of the first section.
I cut the back panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a scrap from one of the patterned papers used on the front along with a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Blue cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in red ink, added a flag from our Flag & Hat Brads and some Patriotic Enamel Stars, and layered the panel on the blue cardstock.
And one more look… so smitten with this design! I totally love the enamel stars used with the hat and flag brads!
