Happy 4th of July

Hello crafters! I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. For the fourth my husband and I spent time with family and of course I did some crafting. I made another 4th of July card. I used the Carson's Creations Sketch #18 which is the "You're a Star" Sketch. This is my first time to use a sketch while making a card and I have to say I love it. I have already created a board on my Pinterest page for card sketches and have started pinning some great sketches. You can click here to see and follow the board. I also used the colors red, white, and blue since this is a patriotic card.
Recipe for the Card:
The card base measures 8.5 X 5.5 and scored at 4.25. The white layer measures 4 X 5.25 and the red layer measures 3.75 X 5. For this card I cut three stars from Cricut Craftroom Basics. The blue star was cut at 3 inches, the white star was cut at 2.5 inches, and the red star was cut at 2 inches. The blue layer behind the stripes were both cut at .75 and the star pattern stripes were both cut at .5. The phrase was cut from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge and was cut at 1.5 inches. The frame around the phrase was cut from the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge and was cut at 2.75 inches.

White Cardstock
Red Cardstock (Colorbok Textured Cardstock: Natural Wonder)
