4th of July card using the NEW Summer Celebrations cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card that I made using the NEW Summer Celebrations cartridge. This cartridge has several wonderful things that have a patriotic theme. You might have noticed this card on the Provo Craft site. They have asked to use some of my work for the website, so if you take a look through the look books, be on the look out for my things. Double the fun, right!

I often get questions from followers of mine about cards like this. They ask me what they would do with a '4th of July' card or a 'Halloween' card. Well, I like to use them as thank you cards. It may say 4th of July on the outside, but on the inside you can write a nice little thank you message.

I used October Afternoon paper.
I cut this out at 4 1/2".
The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I plan on posting the winner of the Car Decal cartridge tomorrow, so be sure to enter yourself by leaving a comment on the Hello Thursday post. Click here to go to that post ==> Hello Thursday giveaway

One last thing...

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!!I really enjoy your work. The instructions are clear and usually really easy to follow. Thanks for all of your help. As a relatively new card crafter, I really need all of the help I can get. I love to do this, but I am just not as "creative" as some, so you have been a great help to me!!

I love the font used on this card, I can think of great ways to use it. Thanks for showing it in more detail. Hummmm... the cartridge gos on sale - tomorrow. Yeah!

Anonymous said...

I love the detail and how thin the letters are that spell out 4th of July. Many say only the silloutte can cut out thin letters but the Cricut still rocks.
