Let's toast

Happy Fourth of July! I have a short and sweet post today to share a fun summery card:

Card created with Love You S'More stamp set and dies (Lawn Fawn) and Confetti Stars border punch and Hardwood background stamp (Stampin' Up!).
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Love You S'More (Lawn Fawn), Hardwood
Paper: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Whisper White card stock; silver paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Love You S'More Lawn Cuts dies (Lawn Fawn), Stitched Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts dies (Lawn Fawn), Confetti Stars border punch, sponge, Mono Multi liquid glue, Dimensionals, Glue Dots

Last month my parents celebrated their fortieth wedding anniversary. Naturally I wanted to make them a card, but I didn't want it to be anything "mushy," so I created this "punny" little scene instead.

There is just a little stamping on this card: the Hardwood background stamp on the Crumb Cake card base and the "let's toast" sentiment on the banner. The rest is die-cut and punched shapes glued onto a Night of Navy panel. I used Dimensionals to adhere the campfire as well as the marshmallows and sticks. It's hard to see in this photo, but I also sponged a little bit of Crumb Cake ink on the bottom of the marshmallows to make it look like they were toasting. Inside the card I stamped the "love you s'more" sentiment and an image of a s'more with a cute smiley face. Love it!

I hope you have a safe and happy holiday weekend. And a heartfelt thank you to all those people -- past and present, civilian and military, famous and unsung -- who have fought for, defended, and protected the freedom we celebrate today.

Thanks for stopping by!
