4th of July spread

Done this layout for the June crop and since we are doing 4th of July items thought I would share mine. Used the A child's year cricut cart for the characters and the Independence day cart for the words. Forgive me for not taking the pic straight, it is an entire 2 pg spread.

Pop Up Card Challenge

We were asked to do a pop up card for this week's challenge.. I folded my card in half and marked equal lines on the folded side with 2 inches apart made straight lines 2 inches high. Then you cut those lines and fold your cut inward. Once your fold is creased open the card folding the little cut you made back and the card frontward. thus giving you a pop up when you hope the card.

The front of my card PP measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 then I cut strips of paper 1/2 inch wide for the ones running side to side. Using a MS punch I punched out the edge of 2 of those strips.. the 3rd strip (brown/pink dots) is MM packing tape. I inked a paper dolly cut it down to half size and put behind my picture.
The picture is a print out of a vintage card. Added 3 flowers and the butterfly and makes a great birthday card. Inside you will see a butterfly to match the one on the outside.
