Happy 4th!


Happy Independence Day!  Here's a card I did to put in the next Operation Write Home box.  It's been awhile since I made Any Hero cards.  These are notes, thank yous for our service men and women to let them know how much their sacrifice is appreciated.

Project Note:

  • The stars were cut with the Cricut using SCAL software.  I created the file myself by just adding one of the built-in images for a star over and over again. I sized some differently, put some stars inside others to get the cut-out ones, and pushed them close together then welded the whole thing.  Most of it cut out as one shape and I was suprised and how quickly it cut.
  • I glued all this down with spray adhesive (3M Photomount, I think) - a tip from over at Two Peas.
Soon it will be time to get our cheeseburgers ready along with some locally grown corn-on-the-cob.  Enjoy your celebrations!
