Happy Fourth of July!

In honor of the Independence Day holiday in the U.S., here are a couple of cute patriotic 3" x 3" cards:

Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Perfect Pennants, Endless Birthday Wishes
Paper: Thick Whisper White, Night of Navy card stock; silver glimmer paper
Ink: Night of Navy, Real Red
Accessories: Stars Framelits dies, red sequins (unknown), paper-piercing tool and mat, Glue Dots, Dimensionals

This card has a layout that gives a nod to the U.S. flag. For the stripes, I stamped the two long, narrow images from Perfect Pennants and hand-cut them, trimming one end of each strip into a V. The star portion, a square of Night of Navy card stock with a pierced border and a silver glittery star in the middle, is adhered over the stripes with Dimensionals. To finish of the card I stamped a simple sentiment and added three red sequins.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Work of Art
Paper: Thick Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Night of Navy
Accessories: Regals Candy Dots, Dimensionals

This card uses just a few supplies -- one stamp set, one type of card stock, two ink colors, one embellishment and one adhesive -- which proves you don't need a ton of supplies to make a cute card. I stamped the chevrons and one stripe directly on the card base. Then I stamped the heart on a separate piece, cut it out and added to the card with a Dimensional. It needed something else, so I added three Night of Navy Candy Dots, although rhinestones, pearls or sequins would have worked just as well.

If you are celebrating the Fourth of July today, I hope you have a fun, festive, and safe time with your friends and family. Thanks for stopping by!
