Red, White & Blue

I got the CAS-ual Fridays star dies & The Twinery Firecracker twine late last year to make 4th of July cards.  So that's what I'm doing--early for next year--haha!  
I've been meaning to use twine in the negative space of a die & finally I did it. Such a fun look! The white inlaid star is covered in Stickles Frosted Lace & the panel is mounted with foam tape over the twine. I stamped the very old sentiment by Peddler's Pack in Memento Love Letter & added PPP Sparkling Clear sequins. I'm entering these challenges: CAS-ual Fridays, ATSM, HLS Anything Goes with Dies, InkspirationalSSS MondayDie Cut Divas & SSS Work It Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  1. I feel that I've fallen behind now on my July 4th cards, since you're already working on next year's. :)) haha

    Great card and what a fantastic idea to use the twine this way. I'll have to keep that in mind. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

  7. I want to come and play in your craft room because you come up with the greatest cards. This is just awesome. I love that twine used like this. A perfect 4th card and if you keep these up you can send as many 4th cards next year as Christmas cards this coming year! My hello die used the other day is a Stampin'Up thinlit. It comes in a set of four with you, happy, hello and thanks.
