Ever since we went to Disney World, my boys kept talking about fireworks. I read a book, Daniel's First Fireworks, to them and they wanted me to read it again and again. This gave me the incentive to create a fireworks card.

I tried a couple different methods like using metalic markers and gold/red embossing to draw the fireworks. Evetually I came to this solution and I'm pretty happy with the way it looks. I first drew the outlines with white gel pen. Then I used a glue pen to draw a circle around each firework then filled up the empty space, finally embossed everything with Hero Arts sparkle embossing powder.

I'm submitting this card to the following challenges.


Supplies used in this card:
  • Mama Elephant Cityscape die (ME)
  • MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX die (MFT)
  • Newton's Nook Designs Whispering Pines stamp set (NN)
