Happy Fourth of July

I thought for fun I would interject a second 4th of July card, mainly because I sort of adore this die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs and after today, it is a little hard (but not impossible) to use regularly.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs eI thought it would also be fun to hand color the die cuts instead of using colored paper today while playing with the 4th of July die set.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs aI started by die cutting all the images out in some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock using the 4th of July die set.

I stamped the sentiment from the Summer Fun Sentiments stamp set in dark blue, and added some white dots with my gel pen.  I also added the white stars from the stamp set using some white ink.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs hSo for you all who are celebrating today, Happy Forth of July.  Hope you enjoyed my little project!
