Happy 4th of July – Enjoy!

Heather here, today we celebrate the birthday of the USA and I wanted to share a project I created to celebrate.

I am all about cutting up the 4″x6″ cards into smaller cards and using them for embellishing. It’s super easy to do too. I just cut them in half and round the new corners. Sometimes, I cut off just a part of a card to embellish. For instance, this green striped card originally was 4″x6″ card with an arrow that says… “some kind of magical”. I had trimmed the arrow off of the card to use in a pocket scrapbook page as an embellishment.

I then trimmed the remaining part of the card into a 3″x4″ journal card. Using Navy and Red stamp ink, I stamped the stars from the kit’s stamp set all over the card. Using masking tape, I inked up the “Enjoy” from the Enjoy Calligraphy stamp set. I stamped it on part of the yellow 4″x6″ card with the three green banners on it. I then cut it out into a pennant shape and used gold star washi tape to adhere it to the card.

I still didn’t feel it was finished so I grabbed some gold metallic ink and the stars from the Enjoy Calligraphy stamp set to stamp all around the card. I will be saving this to put in my Week 26 pocket page for documenting our 4th of July celebrations. I also colored the wood veneer stars with gold Wink of Stella glitter brush and stamped a star from the Royal Wish set.

To show how easy it is to turn it into a greeting card, I used the gold star washi tape and covered a white card with it. I then adhered the pocket card over top and Viola! Easy Peasy!
