HAPPY 4th of JULY!

Happy 4th of July…early!  I had some time this morning to whip up a quick card since my hubby had to go into work for a few hours.  We'll head for the Lake in a little bit and enjoy the fireworks tonight!


As I know I mentioned before, I used less than 1/2 of Pinwheels on Parade Scrappin' Kit for my project this week on Create with Connie and Mary New Catalog 2012 Edition.  On this card are a few more pieces that I had left over from the 1/2 a kit.  You really get a LOT for your money with those kits!



The base of the card is Midnight Muse.  I cut it 5 1/2 x 7, then scored at 4 1/4.  That made the front shorter than the back.  I added a front panel of Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Chevron Folder.  I adhered three of the pennants, conveniently colored in red/white/blue to the top…hanging over the edge.  I used markers to color Happy 4th of July stamp from an OLD retired set, More Great Greetings and stamped on Whisper White, then punched with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  It fit perfectly inside the red/white/blue medallion from the Scrappin' Kit and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added one of the Ribbon Trims from the Kit inside the card.

I think it turned out as a pretty neat 4th of July card!  Have a happy and SAFE one!


My next round of all Ribbon Shares will be ordered tomorrow evening (Wednesday).
