Happy Birthday Red, White, and Blue

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Happy 4th of July!
I had time to make another red, white and blue card! This card will be used as a birthday card. I chose to make a center step card. The tutorial can be found at SplitCoaster Stampers. The card begins with a 5 1/2" x 11" piece of red Recollection card stock. I layered with a blue star patterned paper by The Paper Studio. Other papers are from my scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
When I was a Kid - Banner is cut 4.25" wide.
Wild Card - Celebrate is cut 2.75" wide.

Cuttlebug Folders and Dies:
Disney Take the Cake - Cake and gift cut from red paper and then embossed. Cake and gift are pop-dotted on card.
Happy Birthday - used on the white mat.

DMC Memory Thread is used on the small buttons and made into bows.

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.

Red, White, and Blue

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with red, white, and blue papers again! The card is white cardstock and measures 5" x 6 1/2". It is layered with red paper and then a pretty Paper Studio patterned paper. The patterned paper was left from my previous patriotic card.

Cricut Cartridges:
Independence Day - Bicycle is cut 3.75" wide from the red, white, and blue papers.
Stand and Salute - Banner Frame with scallop edge is cut 4.25" high. This cut did not have any layers so I hand cut the white for the background and added a strip of red paper under the star cut outs.
Life's A Party - Celebrate is cut 3.75" wide.
Cuttlebug folder is Stars...used on the white mat.

Edges of papers are frayed and inked. A red/white button from my stash added the finishing touch by running some Sew Easy fancy floss through it and making a bow.
