Hello crafty friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with an early start to the July 4th Independence Day celebrations.  This holiday is always special  but this year is a giant cause for celebration in our family.  We have some “milestone” birthdays being celebrated by my husband and mother.
So I am featuring patriotic cards that I will be using this weekend.
Here are the Creative Embellishments pieces that I used on the cards.  All chipboard pieces have been embossed using either gold or white embossing powder.
Here is the first patriotic card – a modified tri-fold card I learned from a friend who is rather crafty herself.  Thanks Billie!
I used the Creative Embellishments – 4th of July Atc Coin set as a decorative piece to hold the card closed.
First I backed the coin with cardstock to provide added support and strengthen.  Next,
I glued half of the chipboard coin to the card and let the other half stick out.  next I glued a second coin to the inside of the card but did not glue the coins together.
They formed a cool little pocket for sliding the end of the card and holding in place.
I also aadded a “pull tab” along the edge of the card to let the recipient know how to open the card.
I used the Echo Park America paper collection.

The cards are embellished with some fabulous 3D finishing touches from Buttons Galore and More. Their 3D buttons and sequin mixes add quick and perfect accents to cards, home decor projects, and just about anything.

 

Here is the second card, also a trifold but the Creative Embellishments – Star Pieces are keeping the card closed.

This card features some border chipboard pieces like the star borders and

Thank you for stopping here.  Have a safe and happy July 4th.
