GKD 4th of July Hop

 This is my second post for the day, please scroll down to see my OWH/Tombow post.

Hi there and Happy 4th of July to you all! 

Welcome to this special July 4 Gina K. Designs Hop!  Some of the Design Team and the Center Stage Spotlight Team have some fun cards and projects to share with a patriotic theme and flair!!!  And Gina has a special sale incentive too!  Be sure to scroll down to check it out.

You should have arrived here from Tera's blog, but if you didn't be sure to go back to Gina's blog and start from the beginning.  There are a ton of amazing projects to check out.


I chose to go with a red/white/blue theme for my card but create something that could be used anytime. I embossed the leaves from the GKD Stippled Nature set with white embossing powder onto some GKD PL Cherry Red cardstock and then layered it to some white layering cardstock and adhered both of those to a PL In the Navy cardbase using Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots.  Next I stamped the flower from the same set with Memento Nautical Blue ink onto a white cardstock and layered it to an In the Navy piece.  I popped this up with Tombow Foam Tabs.  For a finishing touch I added a sentiment from the set and some rhinestones to each of the flowers.

Gina is offering a Star Spangled Special for those who want to do a little Independence Day shopping.  The details are listed below.




Isn't that an awesome deal?  Now I will send you on your way to Geri's awesome blog where she will share some amazing eye candy with you.

I use Gina K cardstock heavyweight cardstock for my card bases because it is the heaviest I have found that it never bleeds when using Copics. Your card is gorgeous.
