Oh Say Can You See!

It's a blog hop...


I'm so glad you could join the SNR Card Universe Blog Hop! If you came from Holly Young's blog you are on the right track! If you didn't you may want to hop to the Card Universe by clicking on the image above and start at the beginning.


I made a super cool card in honor of the birth of this fine nation. I wanted stars and stripes all over it, so I created a star-shaped card, and here are the details:


Step 1: I cut three large stars, 2 5-inch stars and one 4 3/4-inch star, and seven 1-inch stars using my Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook cartridge).



Step 2: I adhered the small stars to some blue card stock, which I adhered to the 4 3/4-inch star. Then I adhered several 1/4-inch red stripes so that there was 1/4-inch distance between them to create white stripes.




Step 3: I trimmed the blue and red card stock to the size of the star.



Step 4: I adhered the 4 3/4-inch star to one of the 5-inch stars. Then I scored a line at the base of the top point and adhered the top star to the other 5-inch star to create a card with a fold.




It's a little bit of work, but the final result is fun and festive. I think it would make a wonderful little note of thanks for a 4th of July party host!

Now how about a little giveaway? Just leave a comment on this post, and I will enter your name in a drawing for a free 1-month subscription to SNR! Leave a comment by 10 PM CST on Sunday, July 5th.
