Independence Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with red, white, and blue for another patriotic card! In fact, this card is only those three colors and has no patterned paper. I noticed the star shape border card image on a Cricut cartridge and thought why not try this for a patriotic card!

Cricut Cartridges:
Birthday Bash- Star border card is cut 6.25" wide from white Colorbok card stock.
Independence Day - Flag banners. Each is cut 2" high. The tiny red and blue stars that are randomly placed on the card are the cut out stars from the flag banner.
Phrases - Independence Day is cut 4.25" wide.
Stand and Salute - Let Freedom Ring is cut 5.5" wide. This is used inside the card.

I added DMC Memory Thread bows on the flag banners.

 Inside of card.
