Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Freedom/Patriotism

Show us your Patriotic spirit!  

This week make something that is "Patriotic" or reminds  you of Freedom! Post it on the H2H Challenge H2H blog to play along! ( Right side of my blog is link)

  I choose to make an easel card for my Brother in law since his birthday is THE 4TH OF JULY!  
I used Close to my Heart's Fanfare paper which is retired  but Available this month only during the week of 
July 11–15  Fanfare Paper Packet (X7138B) and Fanfare Level 2 Assortment (Z1400)
for our special!! See my CTMH website to the left for details!  This paper set is perfect for all your celebrations for the 4th of July and the Summer events.  And you will receive coordinating diecut stickers to go with the paper for this special!

I also used my CTMH cricut cartridge to cut out the Stamp and embossed it down each line to make it POP!  Also used are red waxy flax, star dimensional element, sparkles, card word puzzle stamp for "Happy Birthday",  and one of the coordinating Art Philosophy Stamps for the "Celebrate" that I embossed in White.  I cut out some of the stars from the star paper and put on top of the other stars to add some depth.  I think he will be happy with his card!  

Happy Scrappin' & Stampin'
