BLOG HOP & GIVEAWAY: How to make a Patriotic Star Blast Birthday Card


Welcome to my Stamp It Demonstrator’s Group Birthday Theme Blog Hop. We’re all really excited to unveil our projects, and announce a new contest give-away (below).  To continue on your journey through our projects, simply use the BLOG HOPPERS links below.

My blog hop share today is for this patriotic “Celebrate You” card. Created with the Stampin Up Birthday Blast Stamps and coordinating Star Blast dies. The Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper packs a real WOW into the card. See my video below for how to make this card, and download the free pdf for dimensions and supply list.
