Patriotic Card

4th card 2

I had so much fun making today’s card! The finished size is 4-1/2″ by 4-1/2″ square and this idea could be used for different events by changing the color scheme.


It’s always a nice surprise if the inside is decorated, too:

Cascading Card Part 2




Decorating this cascading card was so much fun-  I am crazy for my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and I use it almost every day.  If you haven’t tried it yet, you really should!  I used my old alphabet (which is no longer available) because I haven’t had a chance to purchase the new one yet, but the new one is awesome and would look just as nice.
