CHALLENGE #167 at FCCB

4th of July Cricut Crawl Challenge # 167 Red White and Blue
Welcome to Kim Kreation's and the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!

In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl.  Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!

If you've come from JoNeita at Create with Joneita, you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut HERE  to start at the beginning.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog!  There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB!

Here is my project.
 I love my country and am very patriotic. The card I made is to celebrate Independence Day.


I used Storybook cartridge to cut out the four in blue. The shadow feature was used to cut silver paper from DCWV Metallic Stack.  For the center I cut a piece of white cardstock 3 x 5 1/2".  This left a 1/2" border on both sides of the silver A2 card base.  I then cut the blue and punched stars. The red and white strips are 1" wide . I put glue on the white base and alternated the strips.  When they where all stuck down I trimmed the overhang.  I attached it to the card and then glued the strips of ribbon on each side.  The four is pop dotted and so is the banner, which is cut and embossed using a Spellbinders die.  Using a silver glitter pen I wrote Independence Day and July 2013. The blue glitter star is from a sticker pack.  I also used the silver glitter pen to do the faux stitching.

Your next stop is LB at Cool Beans By LB.  Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!

Happy Crawling!!
