I wanted to make this A2 card open in a different manner. So, I cut my white cardstock length wise using a 8 1/2 x 11 piece and scored it in half. Boy I sure hope this made since. Cause I'm already lost..... Forget it!!! I'll start over.
Make your main card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). Cut your pattern paper at (4 x 5 1/4). Cut white cardstock at (2 1/2 x 4 1/4). Adhere your pattern paper to your main card. With the white cardstock wrap blue ribbon around it before adhering it to the pattern paper. Then cut the following sized mats: (3 x 4) red; (2 3/4 x 3 3/4) white; and (2 1/2 x 3 1/2) blue. With your blue mat I cuttlebug it using my swiss dots folder and then adhered all three together and foam taped it to the main card. Now get your cricut ready. You will need to following cartridges for the rest: Stand & Salute, Graphically Speaking and A Child's Year.
For these fireworks I used the "Stand & Salute" cartridge. I cut them at 2" using DCWV glitter cardstock. Again I put foam tape on the back of each one and adhered them to the card.
For the star, I used the cartridge "A Child's Year. But for these, I got my gypsy out and cut them at 2.75 (h) and 3 (w) in white cardstock. For the blue star I reduced the size alittle and cut. I then took it and cuttlebugged it with swiss dots folder before adhering it to the white star. For the "4", I used the cartridge "Graphically Speaking". I cut the "4" at 2" in red cardstock and ahdered it to the stars. For the "th", I went to my computer. I used the font "Freestyle Script" at 72" in blue. Then I used my circle punch and cut it out. Attached foam tape to the circle and attached everything to the card.
Again I want to thank you all for stopping by and leaving comments. With all the fires around us and the hot/dry temperatures, please be safe. Enjoy the fireworks, but also remember safety. A garden hose or puckets of water near by for that "just in case" moment. I've seen what fireworks can do to a house and I fear it every year. So I can't stress it enough. Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!!!
