Freedom


Happy Memorial Day!  I'd like to just take a minute to thank all of those who have fought for our country in the past or currently serve our country now.  Your sacrifices made this country what it is and lets us enjoy our freedoms today.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

For today's card I created the buildings with the Frantic Stamper Cityscape die.  The Freedom is a word die also from Frantic Stamper that I die cut with red glitter paper.  For the sky I used a fun die called Reverse Cut Fireworks.  This is such a cool die (but I had a hard time capturing the full effect.)

Here's a closeup of how this die cuts.  For the yellow fireworks I put the stars on top of the card base.  For the green & pink fireworks, I put the glitter paper behind the die cut.

From this angle you can see how the colorful, glittery paper peaks out from behind those little fireworks dot trails.  That is such a fun effect!

And one more look of the entire card.

Thank you for joining me today!  Happy Memorial Day!
