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).
