Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 324 Sketch

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy 4th of July to you! Hope you are having a great day!

Today begins another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas! First Tuesday of the month and that means Ch. 324 is a Sketch challenge. I chose to use the pretty sketch for a Patriotic card. Card measures 6 1/2" wide x 5" high and is cut from white cardstock. Patterned paper is leftover from a previous project.

Cricut Cartridges:
I cut the layers for my card using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space.
Red layer is cut 6.25" wide x 4.75" high. Two white layers are each cut 2.75" wide x 4.50" high. Two patterned paper layers are each cut 2.50" wide x 4.25" high.
Independence Day - Hat is cut 3.25" wide x 3.159" high.
Holidays Through the Years Iron On - Using contour feature, the stars on the image were deleted, leaving only the word Freedom. Freedom was cut 1.932" wide x .444" high. 
Banners - Banner is cut 3.266" wide x .754" high. 
Inside the card:
Insert Shapes - Blue layer is cut 6.25" wide x 4.75" high. White layer is cut 4.25" wide x 4" high.
Cake Basics - Happy is cut 2.964" wide x 1.19" high
Independence Day - 4th of July is cut 2.521" wide x 2.547" high.

Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder is used on the hat. Stars are the cut outs from the hat band. Hat and Banner are pop-dotted on card. A little Colorbox blue inking adds the finishing touch.
