Happy July 4th Card with Reverse Confetti and Avery Elle

Good morning everyone!!  I want to wish a very Happy 4th of July to all of my American friends and family, in the USA and abroad.  Yes, Laurey, this means you in Canada also (LOL)!  I would also like to wish the U.S.A. a very Happy 241st Birthday! Although today is just regular day here we are going to try and make a BBQ for lunch.  I am also making chocolate chip cookies for a "July 4th" party we are going to tonight over at CNA, one of the English schools here. Can't get more American than chocolate chip cookies.  

Before I get to today's card I just want to tell you guys that I was a winner on last week's sketch challenge on the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  Yay!  I'll be a guest designer on a future challenge.

Today I have a fun July 4th/Independence Day/Happy Birthday to the USA card using a few Confetti Cuts Dies from Reverse Confetti.  I started by grabbing a piece of red, white, and blue cardstock and cutting each of them several times using the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts die.  I then cut some stars out of white cardstock using the Shakers 'N Frames Confetti Cuts die.

Then I grabbed a piece of scrap white cardstock and adhered the pieces in a red, white, blue pattern randomly using different sizes of each of the colors. 

When done I cut it using the large dotted rectangle die from the Dotted Elle-ments set from Avery Elle, which cuts the piece to 4" x 5.25" with a beautiful dotted border.  

I adhered this to a piece of white fun foam and then adhered it to the card front.

Using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts die I cut a piece of the blue cardstock with the large scallop die and adhered it to the card front.  Then I typed up the sentiment on the computer and printed it on white cardstock.  I used the large circle die to cut out the phrase, which I then adhered to the blue cardstock.  The final step was to adhere the white stars I cut earlier with a fine tip glue.

Done!!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  Let me know by leaving me a comment below.  Again, if you are celebrating today....enjoy the beach, the BBQ and being with friends.  Stay safe!!  Until next time....
