Fourth of July Birthday Card

My mother asked me to make a card for her brother whose birthday is July 4, so of course I had to pull out my Authentique Glory paper and craft away!  I love the vintage feel and more muted colors of this paper.  I used the versatile Close to My Heart June Stamp of the Month to create the fireworks on the panels with Ruby, silver and gold ink. I cut the sentiment shape with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and stamped it in Outdoor Denim with the coordinating stamp.  To tie all the elements together, I added a button and two types of twine.

Visit my Close to My Heart online shopping site if you would like to order any of the amazing Close to My Heart products.  You can get the June Stamp of the Month for only $5.00 with any $50.00 purchase!  Remember that you only have one more month to order products from the current catalog, then the paper packs and many other items will be gone forever!  Contact me with any questions.

Thank you!  Laurie
