CUTTLEBUGSPOT. CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY











































Happy weekend everyone!
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to make something to celebrate Independence Day which is this weekend July 4th.
I made a Freedom card. The card is a large card approx 10x4" and the base cardstock has a self embossed white stripe. I used a bold font for the word freedom (sorry can't remember the font) I used SCAL for this and I should use it more as you can choose any font you have on your compute and shadowing is a breeze! The shadow card has a linen self emboss and the base letters have been embossed with the Stars Cuttlebug folder. I cut the bunting using Give A hoot Cricut cart, stripey paper is Pink Petticoat and star paper is Gina K  and adhered them on some red and white bakers twine. Finally the letters are gold glittery letters from Making Memories.
We'd love to see your take on our challenge this week and there's a whopping great prize for the winner this week of a $50 gift certificate from Simon says Stamps!!
Enjoy the weekend everyone I will be watching Wimbledon on TV!  And to all my American Blogging friends I would like to say HAVE A WONDERFUL JULY 4TH!
Thanks as always for visting me today
