Baby You're a Firework

Hi friends! I'm popping in today with a card I made with one of the add-ons from the July My Monthly Hero release.  When I saw the July Word Fancy Die, I just couldn't wait to use it.  It's my birth month, and we also host our family for the 4th of July every year, so July is kind of a big deal around here.

The background is done smooshing some of the leftover liquid watercolor inks from a card I made for the July My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop.  If you haven't checked out the hop, you really should! There's a $50 gift card to Hero Arts up for grabs! Anyhow, I brushed the leftovers onto a piece of plastic packaging and then smooshed onto watercolor paper. I loved how it turned out, so decided to turn it into a slimline card.

The July word die is cut from white cardstock three times and then adhered together with liquid glue.  I then coated it with embossing & watermark ink and embossed with sparkle embossing powder.  I wanted a bit of a shadow around it, so used the negative of the die cut as a stencil to paint the darkest color of ink, trying to be a bit heavy handed so it would bleed just a hint outside.  Then I adhered my embossed die cut over the top and outlined with a black pen to make it pop.

The sweet little girl is from the previously released Wish I May Stamp & Cut.  I stamped her on the end of the card, then stamped the "dandelion" a little ways from her hand and connected with a black pen to make it look more like a sparkler.  A thin black mat around the panel and a slimline cardbase and I was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your day sparkles!
