Celebrate Independence Day - Many Mates Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today is Independence Day here in the United States and I created a card to celebrate that. Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776.  So I wanted to make a little card to celebrate the spirit of independence.  Here's what I came up with.  

I started out by cutting 1" strips of Real Red, Misty Moonlight, and Whisper White Cardstocks.  I then came back and cut 1/8" strips of the same colors.  I added them to a Whisper White layer one at time.  Next I came back and trimmed the panel down to my finished size of 4 x 5 1/4. I stamped the greeting from the Many Mates Stamp Set in Real Red Classic Ink.  

Then I cut out the sentiment with the smallest oval in the Layering Oval Dies, along with a scalloped oval.  I popped the stamped oval onto the scalloped oval with Stampin' Dimensionals.   I took some scrap Real Red Cardstock and cut out the scrolly star die from the Stitched Stars Dies and added it to my card front.  I placed the scalloped oval on top with more Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I finished off my card by adding the leftover star cutouts to the card front.  And placed the card front onto a Thick Whisper White card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11.  I hope that if you are here in the United States that you have a safe and happy Independence Day.  

Happy Stampin'
