Happy 4th of July by Deanna M
I have a quick 4th of July card for you today. Perfect to use as a party invitation or to just let someone know you were thinking of them.
My card base is white Bazzill Simply Smooth card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a dark blue mat cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and a red mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5". Both of these mats are Core' de nations Card stock (Cutter's Creek is out of this paper but Kim can likely order it for you). I then used a piece of the Whitewash Cut and Emboss card stock. I ran that through the Cuttlebug and embossed it with the Stars embossing folder and sanded it so that the red from the back side showed through. I cut the 4th of July image from the Stand and Salute cartridge at 2 1/2". I cut the shadow twice once out of white and once out of red and offset them just slightly. I cut the top layer out of a dark blue and added some Midnight Blue stickles to the blue layer. Popped up the sentiment with some foam tape. I also added some blue and white and red and white Doodlebug bakers twine to my card. Finally I added a couple of star buttons from my stash and threaded them both with more of the twine and tied a knot.
