4th of July Invite
Today, I thought I'd share an invitation I made for some upcoming weekend plans. 4th of July is one of my favorite times of the year. I don't know if it's the fireworks or parades or maybe the music. It's just a lot of fun.
Stamp the image onto the X-Press It Blending Card & color; Trim image.
Trace the fireworks with the Quickie Glue pen and sprinkle with glitter; Tap off excess.
Cut two stars out of complimentary patterned paper using the Cricut electronic cutting machine; One star should measure 4 3/4" while the other is 5"; Mat the smaller star with the bigger one.
Cut a 3 3/4" x 5 1/4" piece of patterned paper; stamp the sentiment onto this piece of patterned paper & mat onto black cardstock.
Finish by simply assembling the card.
