I know I say this all the time...but I can't help it...I love this card...and to top it off it's also Kawaii...LOL.
The stamp set I used...Star Spangled Day has been retired from Stampin' Up for many years...but it is one of my many favorites...and I'm always happy when I have a reason to use it.
If you look closely at the bottom of the card...I did a Zig Zag or Chevron design using my embossing folder...love the little watermelon...Totally Kawaii.
Adding the stars was a last minute touch...I had scraps left over and just couldn't throw them out since I could still get them to fit in the star punch...how many times have you hesitated at throwing out a scrap of Paper...especially DSP...LOL...I do all the time.
This is the easy recipe:
Stamp set: star spangled day.
Card stock: whisper white...bashful blue...island indigo...blush blossom...real red...and white printer paper.
Ink: island indigo.
Markers: stampin' write.
Punches: 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circles...corner rounder...small star...and zig zag folder.
Additional supplies: diamond stickles...snail...sticky strip...stampin' dimensionals...shore bakers twine...simply scored plate...big shot and fiskars.
