Happy 4th of July to my American crafty friends and "Hello" to all my other crafty friends. I found a little time today to create a card before having to make some homemade potato salad. I know tonight we will be up late listening to all the neighbor's firecrackers. They actually started last night and they will last for a few days until they run out. Of course, if I can't sleep that gives me more crafting time. ;)
I tried a new corner punch that I thought was pretty neat and very patriotic. 
I used the Independence Day cartridge to cut the hat at 3". The stars are from the strip on the hat.  1776 was cut at 1/2". The decorative paper is Americana by K&Company and the card base is kraft paper along with the hat.
I used foam squares to adhere the top layer, so you could see the punch better. 
This photo was enhanced to brighten up the colors.
