Saturday Blog Hop: Red, White, Blue and Blessed

Hello! Thanks for joining us on the Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop! We are in our final week of colour themed cards based on a song title and our theme today is "Red, White, Blue & Blessed". Now, I was a little tempted to change mine to just red & white since I'm Canadian, but I had such a fun idea in my head for a card. I've been a little addicted to the Rays of Light Stamp Set and I knew exactly how I wanted to use it for today. So, Happy Independence Day to all my American friends!

I think that Starry Sky and Sweet Sorbet are the perfect colours for today. I stamped the full image from the Rays of Light Stamp Set and then cut it out to a smaller size using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I popped it up on the polka dot background (from the 2022-2024 In Color DSP) using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The circle was stamped from the Framed Occasions Stamp Set and cut out with the Beautiful Shapes Dies. Then, I felt like "hip, hip, hooray" was the perfect sentiment, (Good Feelings Stamp Set) and it looks amazing heat embossed in white on Starry Sky cardstock. Add in a couple In Color Matte Decorative Dots and you have a fun card for your 4th of July party or simply for a birthday.
