Star Spangled Fourth

Hello! Are you ready for the 4th of July yet? Here's a card to get in the spirit. :) This is the first time this stamp set has seen ink as I got it after the 4th of July last year, so fun to finally use it! The stars were stamped in Real Red and Night of Navy and stamped onto coordinating card stock (though the blue star looks black in the picture). They were cut out by hand and adhered onto a panel of Whisper White. The blue star is popped up with foam tape and also has the number 4 embossed in white on it.

I stamped the center firecracker first in red, then the two red ones to either side. That made it easy to fill in with the blue firecrackers last. Each of the sparks has a tiny rhinestone sticker in its center. Simple and fun! :)

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Stamps: July Fourth, Somerset Alphabet by Inkadinkado (number "4")
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Night of Navy
Ink: Real Red, Night of Navy, Versa Mark
Embellishments: white embossing powder, rhinestone stickers, foam tape

This is so cute! I have the same set which also has not seen ink yet and I was just thinking I better get to it. Now I'm inspired :-)
