Independence Day - The Cutting Cafe

Happy Independence Day!!

Hi Everyone!  I hope all is well and everyone is enjoying their week so far.  Hopefully you all have been enjoying family, great food and fun.  I don't have big plans for the 4th as it falls during the middle of the week and makes it kinda hard for everyone to get together.  So, I'm just going to go over to my mom's for a bit and then relax as I have to go to work Thursday and Friday.

So, for this week, our challenge over at The Cutting Cafe was to use files that were about Independence Day.  For the challenge, I made 2 projects....a card and a layout. 

For the card, I made a gate-fold card where the base is 6x6.  I used the Independence Day Sentiments, The USA Phrases and the Independence Day Background set.   I used my Stars cuttlebug embossing folder and some stickles.

For the layout, I used the Independence Day Sentiments and the Independence Day Background set.  I also used the Stars cuttlebug embossing folder as well as some borders and stickers from K&Co.  The blue paper is from Michael's open stock.  I just adhered the paper to some chipboard to make it sturdy.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Wishing everyone a Happy and Safe 4th of July.
