On the 20th of each month, Splitcoaststampers has a challenge for the Dirty Girls past and present.  This month the challenge was to make a card or project that “screams school’s out for the summer… like the beach, camping, the mountains, bbqing, you name it, whatever screams summer to you is fair game.”  Here is my card.


Well I can’t think of much that “screams summer” more to me than July 4th!  The white lacy scalloped edging was made with the Martha Stewart “Picket Fence” edger punch.  The challenge also had a requirement to include mini brads.  Here are some little mini screw brads.  Aren’t they cute!  lol  I’ve backed them with some blue card stock to help them show up better.


So as to not leave anything to chance, the little sentiment tag has been taped at the top and then raised up towards the bottom with a dimensional.  It looks like it is free to move, but it’s not.  There is no chance for it to get turned or twisted.


I love to paper pierce and need to do it more.  Here I have used two different sizes of piercers to get a little different look.  The Ornare piercing tool and template (red) is a very small piercer with tiny holes that are quite close together.  The other piercer and SU! template make much larger holes.


Isn’t this a fun look!


Hope your summer is starting out with lots of sun and fun.

Happy Crafting!
