The Authentique Pride line is perfect for scrap booking the 4th of July, Memorial Day, and any historical site.  Use it to scrapbook those Statue of Liberty pictures.  And use the Art Glitter products for all the firework details!  To create the title, cut Art Glitter Sticky Paper with a digital cutter such as a Cricut or Cameo.  For this title, Cricut Craft Room Basics formed the word Lady, and Wall Decor was used for liberty.  Use a heavy duty blade in the Cricut with the red printed side of the sticky paper facing up.  Peel of the red sticky paper and sprinkle glitter over the sticky side.  Shake off excess and apply to page with designer dries clear glue.Get the look of a flag with the Authentic paper, and embellish with a circle of stars.  This circle was created with Cricut Craft Room software, George, Basic Shapes, and Independence Day.  It was then embellished with Timeless Twine.
To add the sparkle of fireworks, use the Art Glitter Fantasy Film with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Texture Fades Rays embossing folder for a star burst effect.  Just place three sheets of the Fantasy film inside your embossing folder and one sheet of parchment paper on top, leaving the embossing folder open.  Press with your iron for three to five seconds, close the embossing folder (leaving parchment paper in place) and run it through your embossing machine as usual.  By running the Fantasy film through the embossing machine while it is still warm with parchment paper in place, it will hold it's shape better and be less likely to tare.  Embellish the lines with Warm White and speckles with Showgirl DAZZLERS, using the Art Glitter Metal Ultra Fine Tip and Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.
And custom match your embellishments with Art Glitter's colored glitter.  This flower originally had brown stamens, and was custom matched to the Authentique Pride line with Art Glitter's  Dragonfly DAZZLERS.  What a fabulous blue, perfect for the patriotic paper crafter!  The Authentique embellishment is embellished with some mini pom pom trim.
