4th of July digital stamp card with 2 Cute Ink 4th of July Crab digital stamp

4th of July card with 2 Cute Ink 4th of July Crab digital stamp, by Paperesse.

Here's another 4th of July card for you and like my last Owl Sparklers card, it's created with a 2 Cute Ink stamp – the 4th of July Crab.

Paper is left over from the aforementioned Owl Sparklers card and it's Tactile Studio's Independence digital paper pack.

Bell Gothic Std Light was used for the sentiment font, encircled by a free digital frame from Pixel Scrapper. To save time, I copy pasted several of these to fit and print on a 10cm x 15cm  (4" x 6") piece of white drawing paper so they were readily available to cut out and use on more than one card.

*Crafty Tip* This is probably obvious, but if you're new to card making you might not have thought of it yet – look at the cut out pieces remaining from your die-cuts for possible use elsewhere. The little yellow stars surrounding the crab on this card were the cut out pieces from the yellow trim die.
