Hi everyone, Happy Tuesday!
It’s the fourth of July, which of course means that my friends in the US are celebrating Independence Day! I hope you all have a wonderful time with great good, great friends, and great fireworks! (I’m a sucker for fireworks!).
I thought I’d get in with the celebrations with a card I created the other week. This was created for the latest challenge on the Seven Hills Crafts blog, and it seems I definitely had today’s date in mind when I created it!
Fun right? I hope I’ve captured the spirit of freedom on this card!
I used the Seeing Stars die from Neat & Tangled to impress the stars pattern onto letterpress cardstock, then blended a couple of Distress Inks over it to bring out the detail! I splattered on some water droplets to add interest. Next I stamped some lines from the Concord & 9th Love Always set. I trimmed out just two of the lines, manipulated the strips with my fingers to give them a bit of a ‘wave’ appearance, then adhered them in place with Pinflair Glue Gel.
The Double-Cut Alphabet and Numbers dies were a perfect finishing touch for a bold statement sentiment. I made sure to add some ink splatters in red and blue too, and some festive sequins!
Have a great day celebrating, friends!

Wonderful card! Happy 4th!
I love your card; it’s very clever and really speaks to the holiday. Thanks for sharing.
Brilliantly designed card, Taheerah–LOVE everything about it! Gotta try blending inks over an impressed die–looks really neat! PS–I was truly shocked & honored that you picked my Gossip Column card as a runner-up–thank you so much!
