Happy 4th of July Greetings Card

 Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya, 4th of July is right around the corner so I'm using the happy sentiment and the scroll stamps from the Sunshine Cherub Sun Flowers Art Rubber Stamp Sheet and the Stars Slim Sized Mixed Media Stencil to create this patriotic card. 


BPM: Sunshine Cherub Sun Flowers Art Rubber Stamp Sheet

BPM: Stars Slim Sized Mixed Media Stencil

Patterned and Plain Cardstocks

Watercolor Paper

Various 4th of July Images or Printables 

Extra Heavy Gel


Blue, White, Gray, Tan Inks

Ink Dauber

Black Waterproof Ink

Washi Tape


Paper Cutter


Glass Tray

MISTI Stamping Tool

Thread and Gauze

Foam Pop Dots

Beacon Adhesive: Zip Dry Adhesive 

Place Stars Slim Sized Mixed Media Stencil on top of a piece of watercolor paper and secure with a couple of pieces of washi tape. Apply Extra Heavy Gel with a spatula over the stencil.

Remove and let dry.

Cut stenciled image 3"x6" and lightly ink area in two different shades of blue inks. Apply white and gray inks to a glass tray, add water to each color and load a brush with each color (separately) and add splatters to stenciled area. 

Place scroll stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, ink with black ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. Now center and place "happy" sentiment onto the stamped scroll image before inking and stamping onto the stamped image. Ink lightly over stamped area with a tan ink. Once dry fussy cut image out.

Fold a piece of 8"x8" cardstock in half to create the base for the card. Adhere a piece of solid colored cardstock to stenciled image before gluing to card base. Fussy cut several patriotic images out, layer along with the stamped happy scroll image and add foam pop dots to the back before placing on card. To finish off add loops of thread and gauze under images.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
