Happy Fourth of July to all of my fellow Americans! I am so thankful for my freedom. While the Good Ole' USA has its problems, I love this country! I wish I had a patriotic card to share with you today, but I don't usually make cards for the Fourth of July, so a birthday card will have to do. This is one I made for a co-worker several weeks ago. I'm just now getting around to posting it. Here's how it was made:
Size: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" (I trimmed the bottom with an EK Success border punch)
Card Stock: Recollections; Coredinations
Patterned Papers: My Mind's Eye
Happy Birthday Medallion: I found these on clearance at Michael's a few weeks ago -- great for cards!
Scalloped Circle: Nestabilities
Rosette: Handmade. (Go here to see a video tutorial on how to make the rosette. Thanks Creations by Christina.) I added a felt flower that was in my stash on top, as well as a Recollections rose
Leaves: Spellbinders die
Roses: Recollections and I Am Roses
Green circle border: Martha Stewart Double Edge Bangle Chain punch
Pearl Trim: From my stash
Thanks in advance for your comments. They keep me going!
