Good morning all
This is my DT card for the Cuttlebug Spot this week. Nilda asked us to make a project to celebrate your country. I decided to make a card to say Happy 4th July to all my lovely US blogger and cricut MB cyber friends I have made, so to all of you this card is to celebrate YOUR country!
I made the card with DS and with list the carts below
Don Juan White card no 4 base and blue/white stars layer
Plantin School Happy and th welded word and shadow
Walk in my Garden of which is from the phrase 'of you'
Sesame St Font July weled shadow and part letters
Celebrations Balloons
I've never used so many carts on one design and I think I need to get a jukebox!!
The papers used are a freebie digital download (I will post the blog when I find it) for the blue/white stars and the rest are from Pink Petticoat CD and I changed the stripey paper to red and white in my graphics programme . Silver mirri card.
I used cut down lolly sticks to hold the balloons for rigidity and they are stuck fast with glossy accents! The of is cuttled with Quickutz embossing folder Stripes Label and July is cuttled with Swiss Dots embossing folder. I added a thin piece of red ribbon to finish off.
I would like to say that my inspiration for the 4 shaped card came from remembering a 4th birthday card that my fabulously talented MB friend Donna Mundinger made last year so thank you Donna! If you haven't seen Donna's blog I urge you to visit as Donna is the Queen of shaped cards. See her magnificent work here.
I really enjoyed making this card and would love you to join us over at the Cuttlebug Spot this week!
Have a great week everyone!
