A Vintage Fourth (VSJUN02)...


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

Ahhhh! The last of my 4th of July cards, and I decided to go for something a little more muted than the ones I've been making. This set is a new release from Papertrey Ink -- their stamps are so elegant that they almost demand attention. I still don't have any nesting stars, so I stuck some generic star stickers onto the reverse side of my cardstock and cut out the shapes. For the tiny star background squares, I punched the stars out with an EK Success punch. Then, for a final touch, I decided to try out more faux stitching. Happy Fourth!
