Time to Sparkle America Transparency

Stamps: Warm Words, In the Stars
Inks: Groovy Guava, Whit Opaque StayzOn
Papers: Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue DSP, White
Accessories: Groovy Guava Double Stitched Ribbon, Large Star Punch, Small Star Punch, Rhinestone brad from Pretties Kit

Cute and simple different take on a Fourth of July card. By using the guava it softens up the normal red, white and blue we are so accustomed to in the good ol' USA.

Follow my instructions for using transparencies on post from a few days ago. I cut a 3 x 3" square of the Bashful Blue DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card base. Using the large star punch, punch a brilliant blue star. Stamp an image from In the Stars using Guava onto white CS. Punch out image with small star punch. Adhere small star to large one. Find where you would like your brad hole and pierce a hole. Place brad thru center of stars and into card base.

Adhere a 4 1/4" length of the Guava ribbon to card front toward bottom of where your DSP piece on the card inside lays. Stamp greeting with StayzOn. Voila!

Also, I noticed when I clicked on this picture on the blog and enlarged it, UGH! there was cat hair and finger prints I had not noticed. As I have said, transparencies are fun to work with but you need to be careful. Sorry about that. Guess that is the joy of having two cats that insist on sleeping on your work space, especially if you are in the middle of a project, all the better to them!

Happy 232 Birthday America!
