Ok, so the 4th of July may be over, but as a proud American, patriotic colors won't go out of style. For July, Trendy Twine has a red, white and blue challenge, and this is the card I made.
I layered both colors around the Happy Birthday oval to act as a frame.
I also layered the blue and red (tied in a bow) on the stars to resemble fireworks.
The card template is from SVG Cuts Green Room kit. It has a bowling theme and I kept the pin because it sports the classic red and white colors.
The papers are from DCWV Summer Stack.
I embossed the base of the front of the card, so the inside has a reverse emboss. I just added some leftover pieces to the inside as a design element and to tie it together.
Here's a close up of the "fireworks" star.
What kind of fun projects are my fellow crafters working on this summer? Anyone else entering any challenges or perhaps opening up a crafty business? I love finding new friends that are full of fun ideas, so if you have any cool advise or tips, leave me a comment and a link to your blog. I'd love to see what you're up to.
