Happy 4th of July

More hexagons! I love them!  This is a card for my daughter and SIL so I hope that have received it in the mail by now.  I stamped the hexagons in Real Red and Pacific Point.  The little stars on the white hexagons are from the SU Pennant Parade set.  I matted the hexagons on Pacific Point then wrapped some 5/8" red grosgrain ribbon around the panel.  I then tied some white Baker's twine around that.  I punched the stars with retired SU punches and added a silver rhinestone to the center then popped that on the panel with dimensionals. The whole hexagon panel is then popped up off the card with dimensionals.  Lastly I stamped a sentiment from On Your Birthday.  Happy 4th of July everyone!

Another 4th of July Card

This card is for my oldest daughter.  I originally was going to make a simple one layer card but I just kept adding more and more until I ended up with this.  Things frequently don't go as planned.

I cut my white panel and tied red, white and blue Baker's twine around the bottom.  Then I stamped the two firecrackers and the sentiment. This was placed with dimensionals on Real Red. I had some scrap pieces of Pacific Point and Real Red on my table from a previous project so I started fiddling and ended up with what you see below.  The I saw some textured white card stock on my table and so that had to go on there too but it is kind of hard to see in the picture.  Lastly I placed a few silver rhinestones on the bottom for balance.  Hope you like it!
