Let's Celebrate City Skyline Card

Happy July Ink Blot Shop friends, Annette Allen here with you today and I am celebrating July with this Independence Day card that I created using…

Skyline Borders stamp set
Starry Sprinkle Background stamp set
Sentiment Label Blocks

I love creating cards for special holidays and the 4th of July is one of them. I know it is the 5th but that’s ok, I love America. Fireworks and stars are just fun.
I started with cutting my card base on white cardstock. I always fold my cards using a bone folder so I get a clean straight fold. This card is measured at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

I started with stamping the Skyline Borders city scene at the bottom of my card. I stamped it again on one of the masking magic sheets. I will trim this down so I can mask the stamped image on the card. I repeated this step with the fireworks too.

Now that all your images are masked you can now blend your ink for the background. I used Ranger Oxide inks Blueprint Sketch and Fired Brick. But don’t peel those masks off yet because it is now time to stamp the Starry Sprinkle Background. I used my Misti, just in case I need to stamp it a few times.

Time to reveal and remove those masks carefully. I was going to color the images but loved how the white glows of the card, I just left it. What do you think?
Finishing up with stamping the sentiment, trimming down and adding to the card using foam tape for a little dimension.

Red, White, and Blue….
I hope you enjoyed my card.
Thanks for stopping by.

Have a colorful day!

Happy Crafting,
Annette Allen
