Let Freedom Ring with a 4th of July Gift

Happy Monday Everyone! Aymee Gandy from 'A Scraphappy Southernbelle' here with you on this beautiful day to share an American made gift I have created. Can you believe it's almost the 4th of July? It's time to celebrate freedom and to get decked out in our red, white, and blue! As we enjoy this sweet land of liberty, it's the perfect time to let our friends and family know how much we care! We can create patriotic cards, altered art, banners, home decor', and so on.

 For example, here this Yankee Doodle Dandy has created a card and a cupcake wrapper to give away. I created each of these projects with my Cricut Expression, Sure Cuts A Lot Software, and files purchased at SVGCuts.com. Each of these gifts could easily be recreated with a Cricut and the cartridge of your choice if you do not have access to SCAL software.

This star shaped card was so easy to put together. I had this card put together in under an hour. I love the vintage feel the card has.
 I have 2 layers of dimension on this card. I popped up the scalloped star shape as well as the silhouette of the kids running.

I thought a little sweet treat along with my card would be a nice gift and who doesn't like cupcakes?!
