Friday, July 3



Happy Independence Day to all and a great big THANK YOU to all our veterans who have helped keep our land free.

Today I have a fun interlocking star card with a July 4th color theme.  I had this card in my mind for a while when I saw one with circles, but I wanted to try it with star framelits instead.  Tell me what you think, won't you?

 Cherry cobbler, night of navy and smokey slate card stock was used.  I used the Star Framelits to cut out the stars and adhered them on the side fold card to have them interlock as the way to close the card.

 Here it is completely closed so you can see how the stars fit together.  The sentiment banner uses Pewter embossing powder and the sentiment is from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  The little die cut is from a package I got from Michaels last year after the holiday was over.

 I used a French translation stamp set of Lots of Thanks and pewter embossing powder again for the inside of my card.  I used the inside piece of the interlocking star and adhered it where the two fit together if that right flap is closed into the inside.

One more look at the closed card.  The little polka dot flower is from the Festival of Trees paper pad from the holidays. Oh, and the border punch is retired but I still love it!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Stop at Sketch Frenzy Friday to see more cards with this week's sketch.

I also entered this at The Friday Mashup - use 3 elements.  Go see what else go entered there as well.
