Happy Independence Day! I love to celebrate this fantastic day, and made a card combining stamps and die cuts that help me do just that. I love these mini envelopes by Waffle Flower originally designed for planners, but today I used them on a card. I used the patriotic colors red, white and blue and a new stamp set from Joy Clair called Stars and Stripes, perfect for the 4th of July.
To begin, stamp the fireworks images using Memento Dandelion ink on white card panel cut down to 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Stamp the sentiment “Happy Fourth of July” using VersaFine Deep Lagoon and Satin Red. This sentiment is not in line, so I decided to mask it with a Post-It to have different colors and a linear message. Using decorated paper and a Big Shot die machine, I cut the mini envelope from Waffle Flower three times using coordinating patriotic colors. Paste the envelopes on the center of the card and add any surprise details on the inside as you wish. Finish the design by mounting the stamped panel onto a slightly larger piece of red card stock, then onto a navy blue base. You can continue to embellish the card, but I considered this design to be complete and think it looks great!
Isn’t it the cutest?! Tell us what you think or if you have similar ideas for cute and fun die cuts.
