Good morning. My first thought was that I wanted to make a card to celebrate July the 4th, but I would just use red, white, and blue. Of course my mind went to flowers. You must have green with flowers, right. So I love my card, but it doesn't cry out July the 4th. It's the thought that counts, I hope. Here is my card.
Start with a base of Starry Sky that is 4 1/4 x 11. Score and fold at 5 1/2. Run another piece of Starry Sky through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Hive 3D Embossing Buddy. This paper measures 4 x 5 1/4. Glue down to the base.
Most of my images are punched or cut from the 2022-2024 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.
The bottle is punched from Orchid Oasis using the Vintage Bottle Punch. Add with dimensionals.
The leaves are punched from Parakeet Party using the Bough Punch. Parts of them are added with mini dimensionals and parts are glued down.
The flower blossoms are cut using the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Hippo dies. These dies are part of the free Sale-a-Bration items that can be earned with purchase. The flowers were added with glue. You could use glue dots.
Embellish with the Heart Pearls.
The sentiment is stamped using the Cottage Rose stamp set. Stamp on a white scrap in Starry Sky ink. Cut using the Stylish Shapes dies. Run some of the White Seam Binding around the card and adhere to the bottle so that the tag will cover the ends. Add the tag with a mini dimensional on those end corners. Tie a bow with the seam binding and put in place with a rolled up glue dot.
For the inside, the words are again from Cottage Rose. I used some left overs to add just a little stem and flower. I think that looks cute.
I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July week. Maybe you'll have some time to stamp! Our granddaughters are coming to spend 4 days with us this week! Can't wait!
