Stampin’ Up! Great Big Greetings for the 4th of July

Hello, Stamping Friends, I hope your Independence Day is going to be fun filled!  My share today is from the new Great Big Greetings stamp set found on page 67 of the 2017-18 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  I love large greetings for the front of my cards, and this stamp set is especially fun.

My card base is Night of Navy. A panel of Silver Foil was dry embossed with the new Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and matted to a panel of Real Red with multipurpose liquid glue.  

I stamped the sentiment from Great Big Greetings in Real Red, then stamped it again in Night of Navy and cut out the small words and notched each end for a banner to pop onto the front.  The sentiment panel was framed in Night of Navy and Real Red, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A Real Red Enamel Shape star was added to complete the front.

For the inside, I stamped the splotches from Touches of Texture in Night of Navy and Real Red onto the Whisper White panel.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Words in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss powder and heat embossed it.  Silver Sequins and Silver Metallic Enamel Shape Stars completed the festive look.  

I think Great Big Greetings works well for this occasion, but would also work for birthdays and any other festive celebration, how about you?

Card stock cuts and a supply list will be at the end of my post.
