Grateful for Our Independence

Today is our mid-month posting for Jan's Digi Stamp Shop and her Design Team has been working on several great images to share with you today.  I hope you will take a minute to check out those new cards on Jan's Blog (click here) and also enter your card creations!

For my project card I selected the recently released, Independence Day Friends.

To make this card, I layered the red and blue fireworks across the top of my card layout.  Then I added the burger and chips image below the fireworks, slightly to the left so I would have room for the sentiment.

I colored the image using Copic markers (referenced below) and then used the Penny Black Elegant Stitching die for the edges.  I cut a navy matting and die cut the edges of it also.  After adding both to the A2 card base, I added the crystal star to the toothpick in the burger.  

Next I randomly added mini crystal dots to the firework 'stars'.  I pulled the word 'grateful' from Jan's Alone Together package. After die cutting it, I added a blue edge with Copic B28, then added to the card.  I completed the card with a matching blue organza bow. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards and other crafting items.
