At Celebrate the Occasion this week, we're celebrating the 4th of July and it's time to make a project using red, white, and blue! I just love this time of year, we always get together with family and friends and go to festivals and watch fireworks and the weather is nice and warm, which is always a great thing! For this card and tag, I used K & Company paper and made a pocket card. I printed out some of the words to the Star-Spangled Banner, because besides being one of the best patriotic quotes out there, it's also my 6-year old son's favorite song. :)
Then the tag fits in the pocket that I made by using the zig zag stitch with the Sew Easy and sewing it and reinforcing it with large brads.
To make the embellishment, I scored a strip of paper every 1/2 inch and then made an accordion fold to make it look like a firework. I then ripped a couple of the pleats just to make it look a little more worn. I used glue dots to stick it to the card and then added the sentiment on top.
Make sure you come and join us this week at Celebrate the Occasion for this fun challenge and to check out all the fabulous work from the rest of the awesome Design Team!!
