Happy 4th of July!!!

Are you enjoying another July 4th full of fireworks, cookouts and fun with family and friends? I sure am. This Holiday is always a nice one for us. It's like the official kick off to Summer.

To celebrate the 4th, I created this card using one of my favorite distressing techniques by embossing and sanding the raised areas of white core cardstock. I love how the sanding highlights certain components. It’s like a slow reveal that becomes even more eye catching as you sand away. The sanding gives the card more depth, dimension, and texture. I definitely love that…J
