Vintage Heartfelt Designs Fourth of July Challenge

Happy Fourth of July well it will be here before we know it, we are doing a challenge at Vintage Heartfelt Designs and would love for you to show off the cards that you made and participate in the challenge. Make sure to go to Vintage Heartfelt Designs and see how to participate. I am using the new Bo Bunny Liberty Freedom and Dots papers to make my card with.

I took a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" Kraft card stock and made my 5 1/2" card base and with the left overs I made a 2" x 5 1/2" strip to place on the front of my card but first I used my Tim Holtz Broken China, Barn Door Distress Inks and blending tool to give the Kraft card stock some color that would go along with the vintage feel of the card that I was making. I also added some random star stickers from Reminisce The Freedom Collection to place on the inked Kraft card stock.

I took a piece of the Freedom paper, my Martha Stewart scoreboard and scored the paper every 1/8" to make my accordian fold that
I placed pop dots behind my Karen Foster Patriotic Parade sticker that I had place on a piece of the Kraft card stock. I also ink the edges of all of my pieces with Chestnut Roan Ink.

I hope everyone has a bless Fourth of July and enjoy family, bbq, firework but take time to remember your freedom and those that serve our country so that we always can be assured of it. Thank you to our service men and women and their families and sacrifices that they make so willingly.
