Independence Day Fireworks

Independence Day is mere days away; therefore we've been seeing a lot of patriotic themed cards. My card for today fits right in.

I chose to use The Project Bin's Red White and Boom! stamp set for a great bold sentiment. I paired that with a sparkly texture paste and some fireworks. 

This card was a lot of fun to make.

I used the American Crafts Vicki Boutin Texture Paste in two ways (and this was my first ever experience with it). On the blue piece I used a palette knife to add the paste on top of the Echo Park Fireworks Stencil to create sparkly fireworks. In addition to that, I used the same palette knife without a stencil to add a thin coating of the texture paste past to the entire surface of two of the designer papers.

Sparkle. sparkle. sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
