Stamp the outlines of the houses and the trees on the Whisper White panel using the Black Archival Ink. Stamp the house and tree fillers in Real Red, Pacific Point, and Pear Pizzazz Inks as shown on the card. Use Real Red and Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Markers to color on top of the firework bursts stamp from the In The City hostess set. On a scrap piece of paper, stamp 2 houses, 2 trees, and a car. After stamping the filler stamps in each of the 5 pieces, cut the pieces out using your paper snips for accuracy. Cut off the trunk of the tree to make bushes. Pop all of these pieces with Mini Dimensionals and place on the card front.
Take the dotted piece of Washi tape from the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape and apply a strip at the bottom of the Whisper White Cardstock. Leave enough on the ends to wrap around to the back and secure. Attach the Pacific Point Cardstock piece to the card base using snail adhesive. Using regular sized Stampin’ Dimensionals apply the Whisper White Piece to the Pacific Point. Place Rhinestones in the centers of each fireworks burst.
Since we do not have a 4th of July saying, I typed my saying in Calibri font – size 11 - bold, and printed it off on Whisper White Cardstock. Punch the saying out with the Classic Label punch. Then reinsert your piece in the slot - lining it up, and punch it out again to make it shorter. Apply with Dimensionals.
