Next week is 4th of July, so I've been making some cards to celebrate the occasion. I love all the parades,fireworks and people coming together to celebrate this great country.
My family always went on a picnic to our local park. I have lots of good memories swimming, playing catch, throwing a Frisbee around...and of course grilling hot dogs...oh...and eating juicy watermelon!! And mom's potato salad....can't forget that! Then the day ended with watching the town fireworks. I kept the same traditions with our kids, and they still remember the awesome fireworks our little town provides.
For my card set I used Taylored Expressions Starry Night cutting plate, and cut it out in several patriotic colors. I added Cheery Lynn's Proud USA die on all of them. For some of the cards I adhered Technique Tuesdays HOME die and the letters USA from Cheery Lynn. The sentiments are all from different companies.
Here they are close up:
