More Patriotic Fun!

Today is the 4th of July!! -- which to me always means that Summer is really here!!

I have a couople of extra cards I've made playing around with the star from Ornamental Holiday stamps and Bo Bunny's Red, White and Blue paper pads.

 

 
I stamped a '4' on a flag pennant and accented with a silver sequence star. 


 
 My First Swing card!  I really love these, and are really adicting!  I've seen many tutorials but Beate John's is the easiest to follow here it's also a video so you can play it back as you're making your cuts and folds.   
 
For this one I created my card with a rectangle for my swing shape - it worked perfectly with the Framed Flag stamped image.

 
Swing it open and reveal the other side and a sentiment! 
 
There's no wrong side to this kind of card! All of my sentiments came from the Remember the Moments set. 

 
Again featuring my Bo Bunny 6 x 6 pad, this 'Swing' card was really fun and simple to make and once you've mastered one, I know you'll want to make another and another...!
 
Thanks for stopping by have a safe and happy 4th of July!
