Celebrate! Independence Day Box Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Monday, July 1, 2024

Hi, friends! I am back with a new video and continuing my Pretty Pink Posh box card series with a celebratory card for the upcoming US holiday, Independence Day or 4th of July! I kept the card basic in case you are not from the US or do not observe the holiday, you can switch out the colors to make it a New Year's Day card or for any other celebratory day or event.

I started with getting lots of die cutting done - the Scallop Box Card base out of white cardstock, a scalloped Sentiment Strip from red cardstock, the sentiment from Gift Card Bag in blue glitter cardstock, and finally fireworks from the Big Celebration Cupcake and smaller stars from the Stitched Stars die sets in different types of red, blue and holographic cardstock - solid, glitter and shiny!

To make the stenciled background, I added Blueprint Sketch and Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxides to a piece of white cardstock by ink blending with brushes. Once a large enough space was covered, I used the Fireworks Stencil with Silver Lining Lunar Paste to add the stenciled design. I set that aside to dry; once it was dry, I cut the scallop pieces from the Scallop Box Card Dies.

I assembled the box card together, added the stenciled scallop pieces and scattered the stars and fireworks on the card using thin, 1mm foam squares. I adhered the sentiment to the sentiment strip and popped that up on the front of the box card. For some final touches, I added a few Blue Shimmer Confetti around the box card for some extra shine. I hope you like this month’s box card and let me know your suggestions for a future holiday!
