Happy 4th of July

Don't miss my GIVEAWAY HERE
on my
30 Cats in 30 Years post!!! 
(Hurry!....It ends 11:59 pm Pacific on Saturday, July 6, 2019!!)

Hi, Friends.......

Happy Independence Day to all my American friends!!!

I am here with a quick and easy red, white, and blue card that turned out super cute! 


I followed the MFT Wednesday Sketch for this week.  How perfect for using stars instead of circles!!!

I used some upcycled foiled cardboard packaging for the stars, foiled cardstock for the sentiment, and scraps for the other parts. This was so much fun to make.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and Party Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Big Bang Confetti Cutaways die set
Upcycled foiled packaging
Scraps from my stash

Love how this card turned out and I hope you do, too. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!!
