4th of July Card

Next week will be the Fourth of July so this week I wanted to make a 4th of July card. I got the banner and phrase from the Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge and the frame from the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge. To add a little something to the card I decided to add white stitching to the banner and around the front of the card and I used foam to pop up the banner and frame. I also added some star brads and then a banner and hat on the inside of the card and again I put white stitching on the banner. This was my first time putting stitching on a card and I love the way it adds a little more to the card. I had so much fun making this card and I hope you can use this card idea.

  19. I love your card! It is adorable. I have to tell you that your faux stitching is great. I can never keep it consistent so it becomes obvious that it is pen. I love the bunting too!
