Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day July 3rd!
Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden from Martha!

Happy Fourth of July!

Hey there! Happy Fourth of July! I'm so thankful to be an American and have had the privilege to live in the U.S.A. all my life! We started our church service yesterday morning with the Star Spangled Banner and everyone standing to face the flag. Such a great way to honor God & country!

Today's card was created by one of my customers, Sharon McBride. Sharon has been stamping for many years, even before she discovered Stampin' Up! products. She said in her handwritten note inside the card "this card is a relic! One of the very first I made, probably 35 years ago, at least, when I used only paper, stamps, inks, punches, and a few embellishments! Today - so many amazing products! I know this card is a "plain Jane" card!"


Sharon, I BEG TO DIFFER! This is a lovely card with LOTS of fun "bells & whistles"!

In addition to classic Red, White, Blue, and Silver card stocks and inks, she heat embossed with a sparkly powder the fireworks!


She used a cute small star punch . .


She stamped the wavy red lines, hand-drew the silver lines over each one, then stamped silver stars. She added punched red, blue, and silver stars with dots of glue, then added the white star clip as the finishing touch!


NOT a "plain Jane" card at all!

Although this card was not created with Stampin' Up! products, I love it and see the potential for CASEing with the layout, colors and embellishment ideas!

Thank you, Sharon, for a lovely card!
