Heartfelt Creations_Just A Note

Happy 4th of July to everyone!  Wishing you a safe and happy holiday.  We watched our town's parade last night, 1 1/2 hours!  Our little town is known for having an awesome parade and fireworks.  It's always fun to watch the excitement of the children.

Today I made a card using the cracked glass technique.  It's something I hardly ever do and yet I really like the results.  You will find the supply list and directions below.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

  1. Beautiful card! Love how you picked up the red from the background to use in the image. The cracked glass gives it a nice vintage feel too. It's fun to do that every once in a while! :o) Your parade sounds fun.. glad you had a good time! Hope you have a fun and safe Fourth! DH and I have had a relaxing day at home...getting ready to grill dinner and do some fireworks later.

  2. It's lovely Sarah! The cracked glass effect makes the feel of the card both delicate and vintage. Very pretty! Hugs!
