I’m having a wonderful 4th of July with friends and family. If you ask me, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Going into it, we were scheduled for 100% rain which means no hope of a sunny day but I knew there was 100% chance we were going to have a good time any way. Prediction = true :-) My prayer for all is that you hug the folks around you and understand no matter what comes our way daily, we’re blessed to have our family, our friends (near and abroad) and each other. Today I’m so happy and proud to express an appreciation for my country so I cooked up a true red, white and blue card.
I started out with Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One and cut a card base using the Spellbinders Hinged Card Base tutorial (someone always asks :-)) On top of that I layered Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight (I sliced an inch or so out of the center then taped the two pieces together along the back). I then cut the center out using Spellbinders Standard Circles SM. I finished off with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Four (stamped with Waltzingmouse Stamps Florentine Frippery), that I scored on each pointed edge and curved using a pencil. Recently Waltzingmouse Stamps released a cool patriotic set of stamps, so I knew that I’d be using USA 1776 today. I adore safety pins and I picked up these antique 7Gypsies pins recently and I thought it would be the perfect place to thread on a red, white and blue pearl.
