Paper Playtime-Die Cut Creations-Red, White & Blue

Can you believe it is the first Monday in July?!! Half of this year is already past!! WOW!!! Time sure flies when you're having fun!!! And Wednesday is the 4th!! Hope you have some great plans to celebrate our Freedom!!! But first, we would love for you to join us for our new challenge for Die Cut Creations. Our theme is Red, White and Blue. Use them as your main color in your project and make sure you use a die cut. We have a wonderful sponsor for this challenge. Our sponsor is Ginger Snap Scraps with a $10 gift card. Now to win, you have to enter our challenge with a new (no back links) creation and be a follower of Paper Playtime. I don't make a lot of cards for the 4th. I just don't send any out. But that is what I decided to make. I used the Independence Day cartridge. The cut can be found at #49 on the overlay. I cut it several times so I could cut out the heart. I just trimmed it away from the rest of the cut. Well, I did it on my Gypsy Girl, so I ran most of the cut off the side of the mat so I wouldn't waste paper cutting the whole thing and then cut it. I ran two of the hearts through my Cuttlebug using the D'Vine Swirl embossing folder. I also did some faux stitching with my white gel roll pen. The bg cardstock I have had for a few years. I'm not sure where I got it.  That's it. Head over to Paper Playtime and check out the great Red, White and Blue creations my DT Sisters made. Awesomeness for sure!! Then make something and link it up by noon, EST, Saturday, July 14th. Hope y'all like my card!! And have a wonderful and safe 4th!! Just remember why we celebrate!! If it wasn't for the brave men and women who have fought and are still fighting, we would enjoy the wonderful freedom that we do!!! :)
