Hi, Renee here today to share a couple of 4th of July cards I made using the America the Beautiful collection. Yay! The 4th of July is coming up soon and with that all the celebrating. My favorite parts are the looks on my girls faces as they watch the fireworks.
Here is my first card:
I gathered the supplies used for this card. My card base measures 5″ x 6″.
I started by trimming the Fireworks pattern paper to 4 ¾” x 5 ¾” and made sure to include the bottom decorative strip because I really liked the red stripes. I added splatters of Golden Color Mist across the card. I added a Washi Tape Strip along the top of the bottom decorative strip. I added Glitter Star Stickers and arranged them to go around the eagle die-cut I used as the main embellishment of this card. Love it!
Here is my next card:
I gathered the supplies used for this card. My card base measures 5″ x 7″.
- I used the star punch for a great border along the side of my card. TIP: Punch any sheet of paper first and use it as a template to center the stars on the card and pencil mark where the first star and last star will be punched out.
- I trimmed the American Plaid pattern paper to 4 ¼” x 6 ¾”. I trimmed the American Blooms pattern paper to 1″ x 6 ¾” and adhered it along the side of the American Plaid pattern paper.
- I added splatters of Golden Color Mist across the pattern paper layers and adhered it to my card base.
- I added the Statue of Liberty Die-Cut, flowers sticker, and “Happy 4th of July” sticker to embellish my card and sprinkled a bit more Golden Color Mist around the card.
I love the way this card turned out! It looks like fireworks going off next to the Statue of Liberty. I hope you enjoyed my 4th of July cards and hope that they inspire you to create yours with this wonderful collection.
