A big congrats to Jennifer, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS320)! Her gallery is full of inspiration and I picked her Celebrate the 4th to case. I kept the layout and pinwheel (love making those!), but I used different images, slightly different colors and used another image in place of 2 of the buttons.
The images are all from DRS Designs. I white embossed the polka dot background on the kraft card stock and stamped the teacher tools on another piece. I colored them w/ a combination of Prismacolor pencils and Copic markers before cutting them out. The pinwheel (tutorial here) was made w/ a 2.25 square of the brilliant blue c/s and I added the piercing above and below just like Jennifer’s card. I think piercing looks great and I don’t know why I usually forget to do it. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Congrats again, Jennifer, enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
