Happy 4th ~ Independence Day Card

Today, I am sharing an early 4th of July card.  Since it is just one day away, I chose Independence Day for my holiday card for the MCT blog feature.

Sentiment:  Happy 4th.  Happy Independence Day!

For this card, I made a frame from the long sentiment.  And for the stars and sentiment, I stamped with three different colors to create a blended highlight look.  It is intentionally dark and light in different areas.   The tag was made from die-cuts and fastened with twine.

MCT products used:

Other products used include Ranger archival and Gina K. Designs ink pads; sequins and twine. 

This was fun and easy to do.  Here is a closer look.

I want to take a moment to thank those who serve our country in various branches, at home and abroad, including first responders, law enforcement, the reserves, veterans and their families.  We are in the land of the free, because of the brave.

Please remember to visit Miss Emma's My Creative Time blog for more holiday creations.

Happy 4th.
