Celebrating the USA with a Star!

Good morning!  Its Friday, Friday, Friday and its 4th of July, so Happy Birthday USA!!  Today I am over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration and we are sharing projects to help celebrate this special day!  Like many, I will be celebrating with yummy food, visiting with family and friends and ending the day with some nighttime fireworks!!

My card today is a special 3-D Triangle Star Card.  A little tricky yes, but the end results was so worth it.  My inspiration came from a card I saw in Pinterest.  Click HERE for directions.  I will admit, they were a little difficult to follow and I just had to wing it, but it turned out a ok!
I don't really have any patriotic DSP, so I used the closest I had, Martime.  The coastal cabana sheet is perfect with the little stars.  I also used real red and night of navy.

On the inside, I used stamped in night of navy the smallest star in the Be a Star stamp set and cut them out using the matching star framelit set.

The outside has a simple star in real red with a night of navy one behind it.  I stamped "happy birthday" in coastal cabana and cut it out with a banner tail on each end and layered on top the star.  Some added bling, and my 4th of July celebration card is done. 
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ real red, night of navy, whisper white
Ink ~ night of navy, real red, coastal cabana
DSP ~ martime
Stamp sets~ be a star, and many more
Misc. ~ star framelits, basic rhinestones, banner punch
