Fourth of July Flip-Flops!

Hi Everyone, It's Sonya from Sonya's Paper Trail today and I'd like to start off by wishing my fellow American crafters a very Happy Independence Day!   I wanted to create a card that was patriotic, but a bit funky and fun...and flip-flops seemed to be the perfect combination.  

Check out my card for today:

The papers for this card are from a We R Memory Keepers 6 by 6 paper pad called, appropriately enough, "Red, White & Blue."  My wonderful neighbor gave this to me as a gift and I could hardly wait to put it to good use!  The flip-flops are from the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons Cricut Cartridge and are cut at 3 inches.  The "USA" letters are from Base Camp, which is an older cartridge, but still one of my favorite font cartridges.


To add a bit of flair to my sandals, I pulled out some small Prima Flowers and adhered those to the toe strap with glue dots.  I used an adhesive gemstone for the center of the flower.

Here's a close up of the border I created.  I only have a couple of edge punches, but I sure get good use out of them.  This particular punch is by EK Success. Do you have a "go to" punch?  I'd love to hear your suggestions, perhaps I'll add another one to  my little collection. 

That's all I have to share today...just a simply summer card that mixes a lot of patterned papers for a fun look.  Hope you like it!

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
