Red white and blue



This card will be used for this weeks mid week throw down on OWH. The challenge was to make a summer card. Although I made this card for the Fourth of July it can be used any time by the troops. The circle uses paper from a Bo Bunny pad from last year. The Red paper with the cutout stars is from Creative Imaginations. I cut the paper so the stars were even on each side. I put through a star embossing folder. I had 3 sheets of the paper and I was able to make a dozen cards for my OWH box.

WHat a lovely card! I have often tried to think of a way to use the papers with the patriotic words on them. This is a beautiful way to do this. I may scraplift your idea!

You are so clever, Cora! Wonderful card not only meaning summertime 4th of July, but patriotic for year round and for any hero cards. TFS.

What a great card, and red, white, and blue are such summer colors. I usually use the patriotic word papers for the bottom of cards, but that's such a clever idea to cut them in a circle! Thanks for the inspiration!
