For the fireworks, I used the dot 'stripe' from the Funky Border Strips and curved it on the acrylic block, varying the length but starting from the same point at the bottom. Ink it up each time with the clear embossing pad, stamp the image, then move the strip and repeat until all are printed. Now apply the Metallic Brass Sparkle and heat set.
For the stars, I took a sharp knife to the star on top of the Christmas tree on the Deck The Halls clear stamp set and cut it off to use separately. I stamped the stars one at a time on black cardstock, covered with one of the other glitters and heat set several at the same time. I then cut out each star and stuck it down with foam pads.
The 'Diwali' lettering was stamped and embossed with Silver Bells, and the 'Happy' printed using a Dymo machine. Both were mounted on the card using foam pads.
Enjoy the fireworks - and if you have pets, don't forget to keep them inside :)
