Hello everybody! Heidi here, welcome back to the Marker POP blog. Today I am sharing with you a photo tutorial of a patriotic 4th the July card, that I created using Pretty Pink Posh Sequins, “I wish you were here” dies, the largest form the small set of “Stitched rectangle dies,” and the “Happy 4th” stamp set by Lawn Fawn.
Aren’t the colors of our flag beautiful? I personally love this combination!
It’s is a very simple and fun to make card, just let the sequins be the start of the show.
All the supplies are listed and linked below
Here is is the card that I’m sharing with you today and I will show you how I make it with the photo tutorial below
First I die cut the stitched rectangle die and the United States outline map.
You will need both negative which will be your card front and the positive that will help you trace the place where the sequins will be.
Then I used the positive part of the map to trace the map on another piece of white cardstock, smaller than my panel. I traced it about a 1/4″ away from the map out line. this doesn’t have to be perfect!
You will end up with a sketch like this.
then I used a strong adhesive to adhere the sequins to the piece of cardstock. I used my T-ruler to make sure my stripes were aligned.
I stamped the sentiments from the “Happy 4th” stamp set by Lawn Fawn and added few sequins on the outside to represent Hawaii and Alaska.
I adhered the negative die cut panel using foam adhesive
Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll see you soon with more projects and inspiration!
