OK - now onto my contribution for the hop!!
I wanted to keep my card fairly simple in design! The more I kept creating this card, I kept adding more elements to it! I guess my creative slump is hopefully coming to an end then! I used the stamp sets "Bannerific" "Happy Fourth" and "Argyle Backdrops" to create my card. I had the scallop frame already die cut left over from a previous project, and thought I would put it to good use on this card. I also had the red card stock panel sized down from my stash, and I used it as my focal panel, so I stamped the stitching stamp from Argyle Backdrops and embossed it with some Pewter embossing powder!! Love watching this embossing powder melt! So fun! I, then die cut out of some vellum one of the banners from "Bannerific" and stamped from "Happy Fourth" the Let's Celebrate sentiment and also embossed that in the same embossing powder. I adhered that to my red card stock panel with some vellum adhesive. Then I put all of my elements of my card together onto my True Black card base. I added my scalloped frame first with Ranger Multi Medium in the matte finish and then I popped up my main panel for some dimension to my card. I then die cut some hearts from the Small Journaling card die set and I added them to my card, and applied some White irRESISTible Pico Embellisher to my hearts to make them stand out! I also added that Pico Embellisher to my banner as well.
