I reached for my MFT stamps, which I love, but sadly don't use enough. One of the sets has a good sized star and a tag die. I went ahead and embossed the star on some red vellum from my stash and then cut it out with the tag die.
Then I grabbed my new Lawn Fawn Dies to spell out Happy 4th of July. They needed to be grounded so I placed them on strips of watercolored paper scraps I had on my desk from a previous project.
For some texture I used my Studio Calico Star Stencil and some embossing paste for the background. To finish it off I used some bakers twine and some shiny star sequins!!!
