Happy 4th of July

Wishing you a fun and crafty holiday weekend! In the spirit of July 4th, I put together a patriotic card ....


First, I took a piece of cardboard and ripped off the top layer in parts. After painting it with Adirondack paint dabbers I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil to add the light blue paint.

Once the paint was dry, it was on to foil! I used the Best Glue Ever to lightly trace the edges of my stenciled image, then applied gold foil.

I used the Best Glue Ever to attach everything in this layout -- paper to chipboard, paper to cardboard, metal to paper and a plastic star to the metal. I love using this glue because you only need a few small dots to hold everything!

Have a great holiday and watch a few fireworks for me!

I love how you found texture by revealing the innards of the corrugated cardboard. Best Glue Ever just goes on every darn thing!
