I am on a card kick lately! I love these types of projects. It gives me a chance to work on a smaller project and focus on embellishments. If you love to scrap as much as I do, I'm sure you have LOTS of embellishments that you have bought and never make it a point to use them. That's where card making comes in. Great projects to use a paper piecing pattern and then dress them up with something out of your scrapbooking stash!
I've created this 4th of July card using the Firecracker pattern and I've enlarged a star from Ssss-elebrate. Since the background is a white tone, I've embossed the large white star to make it stand out. Finally, I've used some sparkley stars from my embellishment stash, along with some blue and white twine. ~ DT Barbara
