Happy Birthday America

Although America's Independence Day was this past weekend, today I'm showcasing three of the new patriotic dies recently released by Die-Versions.

I created a step card using the USA die, the Independence Bell, and the Fireworks die.  My sentiment was created using the Happy Express Edge and the Birthday Express Edge.  All of the die cuts were colored with Copic markers and then heat embossed using Clear embossing powder.  The Fireworks die was adhered to fun foam for a little added dimension.

The card base was also heat embossing using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Sparkle embossing powder as I wanted the background to have added sparkle as well as the individual elements. As you can see, the Sparkle embossing powder was just the thing to add sparkle but not all glittery.

Here are close-ups of the Independence Bell and the Fireworks die cuts.

This was an easy card to put together and would also be perfect for someone celebrating a July birthday.
