Live, Laugh, and Love on the Fourth!

Happy Independence Day Friends! What a great day to express love and enjoy life and laughter with friends and family!

This sentiment from the Layering Love stamp set is perfect for today’s card. Aren’t big bold sentiments fun? There’s not much you have to do to make a pretty card if you use a big sentiment 🙂

Pretty Pointer:  It’s easy to make a card when you gather all your elements together. I like to do this, and then come up with my card design. The colors and patterns are so beautiful together and they can be very inspiring 🙂  That’s one thing Stampin’ Up! is known for, having lovely color-coordinated papers, inks, and embellishments!

The strip of stars was made using a little multi-star stamp from the Tabs for Everything stamp set. Real Red ink is the perfect ink for this theme. A sheet from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper makes a perfect background for the rest of the card.

Layering Love is a great stamp set!  It has some big bold sentiments in fun fonts!

Enjoy angled cu

These sentiments make creating a card so easy!  For today’s card I just added the large pineapple, some dots of glitter, and that’s it!

Enjoy standing straight

For the glitter dots, I actually put dots of Tombow glue on my card and then sprinkled the card with glitter. I think I put the glue in more regular lines than I meant to, it’s supposed to be random 🙂
