Here I have created a simple and easy card in commemoration of all the service men and women - because of them we are the "home of the brave". You could also use this as a 4th of July card.
This simple card came from a day of frustrating card making. Oh, I had a super-dee-duper, welded-to-within-an-inch-of-your-life card made but it gave me lots of trouble and looked terrible. I mean, horrible. I mean, wouldn't show anyone EVER. So bad I erased it from photobucket before Melanie could see it and wonder what she was doing with me...
But I digress...
This 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card came together rather quickly after I finished my tantrum. Both cuts are from the Cricut Stand and Salute cartridge. The serviceman is cut at 3" and the "usa" is cut at 1-1/2".
Wouldn't you know I couldn't find my Cuttlebug stars folder anywhere (grr!) so I used the Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder instead.
Paper here is by October Afternoon (stars) , Scenic Route (stripes) and Bo Bunny (dots).
Lots of pop dots used in this creation.
My Creative Time's My Little Firecracker set, without making any errors. I typically don't stamp on a project - always on other paper that I then die cut or punch out but I was feeling punchy by now and decided to go for it.
Here's a peek at that stamp set:
