I missed out on doing the Bloggers Challenge last week…I was a little busy working on earning the Cruise! But, I wanted to make sure I did play along this week! The theme is Patriotic cards in celebration of Independence Day, of course!
I knew I wanted to use July Fourth again, too. Although I'll probably use it again a few times before I put it away…the firecrackers could be birthday candles and the stars can be used at ANY time! It really is a versatile little set!
I started again by using Pacific Point as the base of my card and layered on Poppy Parade…my two new favorites for patriotic colors! I added another layer of Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. I made my own "designer paper" by stamping the fireworks in Pacific Point and Poppy Parade on Whisper White, then layered it on Pacific Point and wrapped the Real Red Satin Ribbon around to adhere to the back (I can't WAIT to get all the new ribbons I ordered!!) I punched a Pacific Point 1 3/4 Circle, then added the Poppy Parade Large punched Star. And, finally, a little heart Bitty Button. Did you know that the smallest heart in the Heart to Heart punch fits it PERFECTLY??? Thanks to Mary Brown for that little tip!
OK…hope you all enjoy the holiday weekend! Be safe!
