Hey there bloggers!  I was feeling a little patriotic today so I made my first 4th of July card.  It is a simple card with a simple layout, but I think it works!

I used the Let Freedom Ring stamp set from Our Craft Lounge.  I've wanted to play with this set for a while but just now got around to inking it up.  All images were stamped on Neenah and colored with Copic markers.  Two different embossing folders were used.  Stars on the blue and the white is a tad bit might recognize it as the wood grain folder by Tim Holtz.  I wanted to use some sort of striped pattern and well, that was the closest thing I had without running down to the craft store.  Would you have figured it out right away if I hadn't have told you?

The flag bunting was taped down at the top and popped up on the bottom with Foam Squares.  Stickles were added to the white on the hat and bunting to give it a little pizazz and the hat and the star are both popped up.  The sentiment was stamped on a jewelry tag punch and the ribbon is from my stash.  Guess that's about it.

Copic coloring:

Banner:  B29, B28, B26, R29, R27, R24  Hat:  B29, B28, B26, R29, R27, R24  Outlines:  110
