With Liberty and Justice for all!

There is something about the red, white and blue that always helps to remind me about how fortunate I am to live in this country. Speaking of the red, white and blue, have you seen Bo Bunny's new Liberty collection? It is patriotic through and through! I know this collection might not be for everyone, but it certainly inspired me!  Playing along with creating a 4th of July card and I got a bit carried away.  Instead of creating one card I created 4! 4 for the 4th!!!
For this one I used the Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge to create my stamp shaped card.  I used my Gypsy to weld the two stamp shapes together.
Here I used two of the new Bo Bunny Noteworthy die cut shapes (the star and the label shape) to embellish my card. 
 
For this one I had fun embossing the plastic packaging that Cricut cartridges come in using the Stars embossing Folder.  I then stitched the plastic piece to my card with my sewing machine. 
Here you can see it a little better...
For this one I used a strip of denim from the Learning Curve wraps and then layered some Double Dot ribbon in red and a brad on top.
 I was also going through some photos recently and found this photo from the 4th of July last year.  I took it at a local park that was celebrating the 4th.  They had flags lining this entire section of the park, which is a memorial to veterans.
Seeing all of these flags inspired me to create a version of our flag as a home decor piece. I used pre-cut wooden shapes purchased at my local craft store as the foundation for the flag.  The top piece is 6 x 12" and the strips are 1 x 18". I trimmed the strips to 1 x 16" and then adhered them to the backside of the larger piece to create my stripes!
I created a fun medallion for the center using a star I cut from the patterned paper, an accordion folded flower and chipboard circle and brad for the center.
 
Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny Liberty
Brads, Stickers, Chipboard Stickers: Bo Bunny Liberty
Double Dot Ribbon in Red
Denim Wrap: Bo Bunny Learning Curve
Embossing Folder and Elegant Edges Cartridge: Cricut


I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend and of course celebrate it safely with your family and friends! I know we will, because we are going to be spending it at the lake with my Dad!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Hugs!
Juliana
