We are creating projects today with the theme "It's a Girl Thing". Many of you may know this if you follow me, but I'm not great at girl theme cards. I am very much a tomboy card maker. Today I used the Boom! stamp set and coordinating dies to create this festive fireworks card. The background was created using Ken Oliver Color Bursts. This product is so fun, but can also be very messy. As long as you are aware of the possible mess factor, like many products we paper crafters use, you will have a blast (pun intended) creating this fun background.

I started with a 6x6 piece of Canson XL watercolor paper. I used two colors that I though would go well with the "It's a Girl Thing" theme for this background, and I chose Orchid and Turquoise. I strategically placed my color burst powder where I wanted it. After placing the dry power to dry paper I then sprayed water from my mini mister to activate the powder and thats what made this explosion type background. I then cut out several layers from Spellbinders Curved Square dies and used different amounts of foam tape to add dimension. They were placed on a standard top folding A2 sized card base made from Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. The sentiment was white heat embossed on Simon Says Stamp Black cardstock and cut out with a Spellbinders page maps speech bubble. The firework image from the Boom! stamp set was clear heat embossed and colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. He was placed on an action wobble to make this card even more fun.
