Sweet Stamping Challange Blog
I thought this was a great challange! I was ready to make something simple to send out for the 4th of July holiday. I wanted something I could make pretty quick and easy!
I used the blank card on the sentiments cartridge to cut my card. The red cardstock was cut at 5.25 :) The white piece of cardstock was cut from the plantin school cartridge. I cut it at 4.25. Then I used a corner punch to do all the corners of the white paper. I then used pop dots to put down the white.
I used a stamp purchased from Hobby Lobby that looks like fireworks. I actually used blue, red, and white embossing powder for the background fireworks. The only other cuts I used are the 4th of July and the American Pride were both cut at 3.25 :)
I hope you enjoy this card!! I am sending this one to my brother who is serving our country in Afghanastan. He has been gone a few months and I miss him like crazy. His daughter Joanna (8) comes to my house to play with the cricut. I am also posting her card that she is sending to her daddy. I am sure the big tough army guys will love this BRIGHT pink cardstock and all the hearts :)
I am also going to enter this card in another challange over at My Sheri Crafts! Its a patriotic theme this week! WOOHOOO!
