Dies R Us Challenge July 1, 2021!(Anything Goes!)

Hi, there!

Happy July 1st and it's time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  All you have to do is use a brand of die that Dies R Us sells...easy peasy!  So, please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate...enjoy creating! 

For today's card, I made a patriotic birthday card for a friend's husband!  His birthday is on July 4th!  Our town plans to have fireworks this year over the river.  I'm looking forward to all the festivities!  I hope all of you in the USA have a fun safe July 4th!

For my card, I started with a white card base.  The Lawn Fawn stitched stars were die cut onto the card.  The dies do not cut completely through.  But, that's ok, for it did make a card that I'm please with for Ted's birthday.  I colored the outline of the stars with copic markers.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.  The frame was die cut using IO Checkered Frames.  The paper that I used is from Doodlebug and twine to finish the card.

The inside sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy  and the firecracker sticker is from Doodlebug.

  All dies that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project using dies and join us for the challenge!

Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)
