Happy July 4th Card with Reverse Confetti and Avery Elle



Good morning everyone!!  I want to wish a very Happy 4th of July to all of my American friends and family, in the USA and abroad.  Yes, Laurey, this means you in Canada also (LOL)!  I would also like to wish the U.S.A. a very Happy 241st Birthday! Although today is just regular day here we are going to try and make a BBQ for lunch.  I am also making chocolate chip cookies for a "July 4th" party we are going to tonight over at CNA, one of the English schools here. Can't get more American than chocolate chip cookies.  

Before I get to today's card I just want to tell you guys that I was a winner on last week's sketch challenge on the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  Yay!  I'll be a guest designer on a future challenge.  


If you wish to check out the winning card just click HERE!  This week they are having a wedding card challenge, which you can check out HERE!

Today I have a fun July 4th/Independence Day/Happy Birthday to the USA card using a few Confetti Cuts Dies from Reverse Confetti.  I started by grabbing a piece of red, white, and blue cardstock and cutting each of them several times using the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts die.  I then cut some stars out of white cardstock using the Shakers 'N Frames Confetti Cuts die.


Then I grabbed a piece of scrap white cardstock and adhered the pieces in a red, white, blue pattern randomly using different sizes of each of the colors. 


When done I cut it using the large dotted rectangle die from the Dotted Elle-ments set from Avery Elle, which cuts the piece to 4" x 5.25" with a beautiful dotted border.  


I adhered this to a piece of white fun foam and then adhered it to the card front.


Using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts die I cut a piece of the blue cardstock with the large scallop die and adhered it to the card front.  Then I typed up the sentiment on the computer and printed it on white cardstock.  I used the large circle die to cut out the phrase, which I then adhered to the blue cardstock.  The final step was to adhere the white stars I cut earlier with a fine tip glue.


Done!!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  Let me know by leaving me a comment below.  Again, if you are celebrating today....enjoy the beach, the BBQ and being with friends.  Stay safe!!  Until next time....

Hugs from Brasil -

  1. Great design! I love the use of the frame die to get all the bits to look like you made it as one from the beginning! Cool pin dot border. Happy Fourth of July to you!
