4th of July!

Well, my friend Aubrey sent me some goodies in the mail and they are all over this card! The ribbon and the buttons are all from her (Thank you!).

4th of July and the sailboat are both cut from Designers Calendar™ cartridge. The "4th of July" didn't have a shadow feature, so I just cut it out a little bit bigger and I think it still looks great!

I embossed the sailboat with two folders: the A2 Swiss Dots Embossing Folder™ and the A2 Combo Birthday Wishes™ folder. I just used the part below the candle tops. I love the striped look!

The paper is kraft, DCWV neutrals (dark and light blue), and the DCWV Taj Mahal stack.

This card qualifies for three challenges:
Wee Memories: red, white, and blue
The Cuttlebug Spot: Independence Day
Cricut Carz Challenge: 4th of July

My best friend Kourt is active duty in the Air Force right now (she just graduated from medical school!) and I think I'll be sending this to her. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe 4th of July.

Your friend is going to be so appreciative that you made a fabulous 4th of July card for her. My son is a Marine and I know how important it is to let them know their service is a wonderful thing. I love how you embossed the boats with the two different patterns. Well done! Thanks for sharing your card with us at CCC.
