Happy Monday!!!! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend and are planning on having a big 4th celebration. Today at Exploring Cricut we are showing our 'red', 'white' and 'blue'!! And we hope y'all will join in with us and show yours, too!! Just make a card, layout or papercraft and link it by 9pm, EST, Saturday, July 7th. Please remember to add a cricut cut. Also, new creations-No backlinks, please.
For my card today I pulled out my Stand and Salute cartridge. I flipped through the booklet and decided to cut the fireworks on page 50 and the 'God Bless America' on page 68. After all, by the grace of God we can celebrate our freedom!! My fireworks were cut at 2.25 and 1.75 inches and the phrase at 2.50 inches. I cut two of the phrase and then cut the stars off of the red one and glued it on top of the blue. I then did some doodling with my white gel pen. The fireworks I cut out in white and then coated them with Waterfall Stickles. I then popped them up. The bg pattern paper is open stock from Hobby Lobby-Paper Studio. I got it last year and still had a couple of sheets of it. The sentiment on the inside is from the Happy Days stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. The most awesome stamps out there!! Go check them out!
That is it. Head over and check out the creations my DT Sisters and Brother have created for some inspiration! Awesomeness for sure!!!! And then create and link up! That's the only way you are in the running for the great prize! I gave this card to my Secret Sister at church yesterday. Come back by Saturday and see what else I made for her.
I am also entering my card in the Bitten By The Bug 2-Patriotic Challenge that started last Monday. Since I don't usually send out 4th of July cards I decided to combine the challenges. Hope y'all don't mind!!
Hope ya like my card!!!! :)
