Betsy’s Blossom Is A Firework!

My apologies to Katy Perry!  Can you believe it's only one week until July 4th!  Wow!  This summer is flying by!  I thought I'd try a couple of red, white and blue cards to celebrate the season! 

Firework - two cool

Have you noticed how much the large image from the Betsy's Blossom set looks kinda like fireworks?!  I decided to experiment with some bursts of patriotic color on these Two Cool cards!

And, considering my area in Indiana is under a servere drought, with 104° temps and high winds forecasted for tomorrow, and a fire watch and burn ban in place…these may be the ONLY fireworks we see this year! *sigh*

Firework - diamonds

On this version, I used Pacific Point, Real Red and Bashful Blue for the color combination. 

Firework - diamonds burst

Each firework is sparkling with Dazzling Diamonds and a Rhinestone Jewel in the center.

I finished off the card with Pacific Point 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and a Real Red Perfectly Penned sentiment.

Firework - details

The second card uses a darker combination: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist and Bashful Blue. 

Firework - details 2

I stamped more colorful bursts onto scrap Whisper White card stock, then cut out smaller shapes to pop up on the fireworks for dimension.  Rather than Dazzling Diamonds glitter, I tried Dazzling Details glitter glue.  I like the finished look of the glitter glue better, but it did make the ink bleed a bit, and it took a while to dry.

This card is finished with Rhinestone Jewels and Cherry Cobbler Scallop Polka Dot Ribbon.
