4th of July

Woot, woot!  I’m a wandering child come home – maybe not for long.  I’ve been enjoying do work in my planner, using stickers from Etsy shops,.  This is a hobby I have with my 15-year-old granddaughter.  It’s something we have in common for now.  However, I HAD to come up with a card for our friend who has a birthday on the fourth of July.  I always enjoying sending him a card for his special birthday.

I found it necessary to take the easy way out when making this card.  As lazy as I was, I used a card base that I already had made.  It was a base made with 100# Neenah Crest Solar White Cardstock.  The top 2/3 of the card was embossed with a vertical embossing folder on 80# Neenah Crest Solar White Cardstock.  I don’t remember the name of the folder.  I used Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner Tape to attach it to the white card base.  The bottom 1/3 of the card used the same white cardstock.  It was not embossed.  Strips of red cardstock were adhered to it vertically.  A strip of yellow cardstock was adhered horizontally to the top of the red strips.  Now here is the trick that made it so easy.  Since I already had the card base, all I did was use a sticker from Create 365 Happy Memory Keeping Me & My BIG Ideas: Holidays.  

I adhered the sticker to a piece of 80# Neenah Crest Solar White Cardstock before attaching it to the card front.  Otherwise, the sticker would not have laid flat.

On the inside of the card, I used clear vinyl stickers from the same folder.  Three balloons were used – red, blue, yellow and a few sparkles.  The sentiment stickers said, “It’s your special day.  Celebrate!”  I’m sorry I didn’t take a picture of the inside of the card.  I wish I had.  It turned out so cute.

Thanks for stopping to have a look.  I’m really hoping to get my mojo back for making cards.  Since I’m doing decorative planning, it’s hard to find time to make cards, too.  Right now, I need to come up with a birthday card and an important anniversary card.  On to the craft table!

    This is a wonderful CAS card. So glad you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I hope you’ll join us again soon. I want to leave you with the inspiration of God’s Word in 2 Peter 3:9 which says, “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” Have a blessed week.
