Happy July! Today’s card will get you thinking of fireworks and the Fourth of July with its brightly colored sunshine rays and sparkly sequins. It’s another card made from a background I made awhile back and put into my stash. I wish I could say that my “stash” pile has become real small at this point, but it seems the more I use, the more I make. 😉

Altenew Dearest Friend Stamp and Spring Shower Cover Die
Wouldn’t you agree, that we can never have too many good friends. They become an extension of our family and are there for us in the good times and bad. Today’s card honors special friendships. I had a very dear friend in mind as I created this card.
Split-Card Design inspired by Jennifer McGuire 2019
Today my card has been inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s YouTube video post on May 10, 2019. It is called a “split card design” because the top and bottom of the front of the card are only connected by the elements between them. The middle of the card has a hole in it, so to speak. Check it out in the pictures below.
My youngest daughter recently moved to Virginia with her husband, so this card was made with her in mind. The card has a number of imperfections, as it takes a bit of planning ahead of time, but my daughter will see only the LOVE that was put into it. 😉

How I made it: Please see Jennifer McGuire’s YouTube video on how to put together a “split card” design. She does a wonderful job of teaching how to do it. 🙂 I have a link to the video at the beginning of my blog post.
