Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop

Hello there!  It's the 8th of the month, and that means it's time for the Reverse Confetti June blog hop!  This month, we have a Summer Fun theme!  I don't know about you, but when I think of summer, I think immediately about the 4th of July.  I pulled out some of my favorite products and created a fun star spangled card!

To create my card, I started off with an A2 card base cut from Premier Polar White cardstock.  On top of that, I layered a Big Stripes Cover Panel cut from Salsa cardstock.  For my next layer, I cut the Polka Panel from Navy cardstock and backed that with white before adding it to my card front.  For my focal point, I pulled out my Fa La La Circle Confetti Cuts dies and diecut the pinked edge circle from some Warm Heart patterned paper.  I diecut the smaller circle from that die set from white cardstock.  In the center of the white circle, I stamped a sentiment from the Because of the Brave stamp set in Navy ink.  For some added detail and another pop of red, I bordered each side of the sentiment with the herringbone pattern from the Pattern Blocks stamp set, stamped in Salsa ink.

Stars & Stripes Forever

And it's not 4th of July without a little sparkle!  I added a trio of stars by diecutting the two sizes of scribble stars from the Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts die set out of gold glitter paper and then added a scattering of metallic gold sequins to finish off my card.
