4th of July challenge

Welcome to my blog world for another awesome challenge for Exploring Cricut!  This week's challenge is to create a card, layout, or other paper craft celebrating the 4th of July and you must include a flag.

I decided to create a card for a friend's birthday.  He's a "firecracker" baby so I decided to step outside the box for him.
I definately had a lot of fun with this card as I tried something I've never tried before.  I used the special stamp set from CTMH "Home of the Brave" to stamp the background with patriotic sayings.  I used cranberry and pacifica inks.  I then used the cartridge Stand and Salute to cut the flag.  All cuts were made at 3"

cardstock: cranberry, pacifica, cocoa, white daisy
Home of the Brave stamp set
sparkles: Michaels


  1. Great job and thanks for being a part of the team!

  2. The flag looks so good on top of the stamp. Really pops:)
