Hello Crafty Friends,
I hope you have been enjoying your 4th of July (those from USA). My hubby had the day off, so we went out of town for half the day. It was a pleasant day getting some lunch and then doing a little shopping. No craft supplies today...instead my daughter and I got some Betsey Johnson jewelry that was on sale for 65% off. I do LOVE a good sale!
I made this card early this morning before we left, but was not able to take pictures until we returned. It is for a friend who has a birthday in two weeks.
This is also my Die Cuttin' Diva Design Team project...red, white, and blue. It is a day late since I have been working on a BIG project that has taken most of my time for the past 3 - 4 days. I can't say what it is yet, but it will be a series of projects with some helpful tips. I have a few more pieces that I am working on before I release the details.
Here is my project for today...
I have never used this ribbon until today. I bought it on clearance after the holiday last year and was waiting for the right time.
The tiny stars on the cupcake are from a patriotic corner punch. I think they match the ribbon perfectly.
This flower is made from stars cut between the sizes of 1" to 2 1/4". I layered them, added the brad, twisted and fluffed the edges.
