More Card Candy

This time around it is Patriotic card candy.

The picture is not perfect because the scanner's field of focus is to narrow for the 3D firecrackers.

The topper is blue splatter paper I've had forever, cut with SU's Top Note die folded in half. The red is cut with SU's scalloped circle punch, the letters are Colorböx's Alpha Stax stamped with blue ink (?) using a little stick stamp from Michael's years ago. The firecrackers are patriotic paper scraps rolled with jewelry hemp for the wick. The stars were cut with the Sizzix Star #2...the smaller red die for the white, SU's larger star punch for the red one, and the blue one is Sizzix's yellow border star die which was then embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. All paper used was scraps and I don't know the vendor. The photo corners were punched using SU's punch and once again were punched from scraps. The last piece of candy was punched using SU's curly label punch from scraps of blue paper that has darker blue stars on it (scraps) and SU's small star punch from more maroon color scraps...yes, I have bunches of patriotic paper scraps and this is a great way to use them!!!
