Happy 4th of July

Since Independence Day is just over a week away, I decided to create a fun  patriotic card to share with you today. When I received the Poppystamps balloon dies in the mail, I knew I wanted to do something "different" with them. So instead of using them to create a birthday themed card, I used them on this bold and bright July 4th card!

For step by step instructions on putting this card together - Visit today's post on the Cropstop blog.

Supplies and Tools:
Embossing: Stars embossing folder (Darice) 
Dies/Punches:  Happy Balloons (Memory Box - Poppystamps), Star Punch 
Ink: Ultramarine blue/Alizarin Crimson Color Bursts (Ken Oliver), Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink (Ranger)
Misc. Scoring Board (Martha Stewart), Mounting Tape
Stamps: American Collection (Amy Design)
