Happy 4th...

I had to stop in and say Happy 4th to all my blog friends!  We have had some late nights and the kids are still sleeping so I snuck down about 30 minutes ago and whipped up this quick, die only card....

Here is a list of the dies I used...all linked at the end of this post...

Cover Plate: Stars
Circle Scribble Dies
Large Number Dies
Wet Paint Cuts

....and no stamps!  :)  I used Stampers Select White to cut out the stars from the Star Cover plate and then decided then needed to be gray so I colored them with a C1 Copic.  I put a dot of glue on each star while they were still all in one piece, then put it down on the card base and let it sit.  I was able to gently pull up the cover plate negative and the stars stayed perfectly placed.  I cut out "happy" in vellum and the "th" from the thanks die, both from Wet Paint Cuts.  I just layered it all up with Tombow Glue and foam tape.  I was SO happy to find the "th" so I could use the same font.  Fun find of the morning!  :)

Several people have asked how I attach my vellum.  I used the Tombow Vellum glue runner (linked below) and just use a tiny bit and I don't press down very hard.  It sticks and it is wonderful!  Speaking of vellum....have you tried PTI Vellum?  My friend Amy told me I needed to try it...and I am hooked.  It is AMAZING!!  It die cuts beautifully.  I have it linked below, as well!

Do you have any fun plans for today?  We are having a lazy day and hanging around home.  We are having friends over tonight to shoot of some fireworks and have s'mores in the fire pit!  It should be a fun, low key evening with this amazing weather we are having!

Hope you have a fun and safe day! Thanks for stopping in!

I Just got my Wet Paint Cuts and was wondering if the "th" from "thanks" would work with By The Numbers. Love that you showed it here, and your card is adorable! Sounds like you had a great 4th…so did we!
