CAS(E) this Sketch #175

In the mood for some Red White and Blue, I found over at CAS(E) this Sketch the recent one #175 was perfect for a 4th of July card.

 I started off with some 110 pound heavy weight black card stock from Micheal's and added some adhesive backed paper to the back of it.
Using a variety of dies.
The 4 came from My Favorite things.
Not sure were the July came from either Paper Trey Ink or My Favorite things.
I started off with some Stampin UP T&H dies but changed to Lawn Fawn Dies for the T&H.
 I took a Simon Says Stamp and embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder on the same 110 pound black card stock.
 I used the Stampin UP star dies and some Die Cuts With a View glitter 6X6 paper and cut out three, one in red, white, and blue.

Using Tombow Mono glue I added some to the corners of the red and blue star like the picture is shown,

I also added some to two opposite points of the silver star.
 The adhesive backed paper makes it so easy to adhere these pieces to the glitter paper.

Once you get the were you want them make sure to press them down to really get the bond of glue to glitter.
 Here is the before and after of the T&H.

They needed to be smaller so I just used my paper snips to cut them down.

I have two pairs of paper snips, one really good pair and one for things like adhesive paper.
 I made the happy into little banners and used liquid glue to attach them to the glitter paper.

To hold them down while they dried a bit I used a clear block.
 I over did the foam but this is pretty much the only thing on the card so I wanted to make sure it did not sag.
Finished Card.
