I was feeling a little patriotic and had a birthday card to make for my Uncle whose birthday is on the Forth of July. I love the silhouette cuts on A Child's Year and thought this one was so appropriate for his card. He turns 82 on the 4th. I also had picked up the Independence Day Cart last year and never used it so I thought the flog would be a good background layer for the festive little guy marching along in celebration!!!! The card is a 5x7 inch with lots of layers and popping. I did stickle all those little stars on the flag and it is hard to see how they sparkle on the picture. The background paper was scanned into my computer and scaled down to size. Now that I know I can do this I might not have to use up all my favorite paper. I have a Epson Sylus Photo 1400 that does a fabulous job with printing. I know this is cheating but I don't think I have very much room for more paper and it turned out great!!!! I used the stamped sentiments called celebration happiness by Hero Arts.
Thanks once again for stopping by and taking a peek!! I so enjoy when people stop by so let me know when you do!!!!
