From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. The Fourth of July 2020 is on Saturday, July 4, 2020.  This year may look a little different but no less special than last year.  Today's project is celebrating with the cheerful and bright hues of Misty Moonlight and Poppy Parade. 

With the help of Whisper White card stock, the colors blend together well as they have since the tradition of Independence Day that started back in 1776!

To create the background, I started with colors that I love to put together.  The patter of the Designer Series Paper helps the card flow from one star to the next.  With the thin layered front the stitched stars on top of the Misty Moonlight really makes the panel pop on the Basic Grey card base.  I used my Tombow multipurpose glue to adhere all the die cuts to the front and Stamin' Dimensionals to pop up the Poppy Parade star.

The awesome sentiment was stamped in Poppy Parade onto Whisper White card stock and then cut out using one of the Ornate Frames dies – love that set of dies!  I also used dimensionals to pop up the sentiment.

Project Measurements

  • Basic Grey card base, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
  • Whisper White layer, 4 1/8" x 5 3/5"
  • Misty Moonlight Designer Series Paper layer, 4" x 5 1/4"

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you’ll find a way to Celebrate the independence of our country and as always, find time for your family.

If you do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I would love to help you on your journey of papercrafting.  Have a Blessed Day!

Stampin’ Up! Wonder Of The Season Memories & More Card Pack

Stampin’ Up! Wonder Of The Season Memories & More Card Pack Wow, that is mouthful.  I sat down on morning thinking of making easy cards and came up with these!  I made 20 cards and for a fraction of the cost if I had purchased cards like these in retail.  I was able to make these cards with no stamping.  I used the coordinating ribbon pack and my dimensionals and adhesive and Viola! 20 cards came together so easy.  This one is my favorite. I used the beautiful Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack #153538 , Wonder of the Season Ribbon combo pack #153537  and Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes #153539 .  These products are featured on page 31 of the new Stampin’ Up! August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. If you would like the PDF that I have created for these 20 beauties, just email me and for $10 the PDF can be yours today.  Just take a look at a few more beauties that I created. I hope you love the new Mini Catalog and Online Store as much as
