Quick Cricut Summer Celebrations 4th of July Firecracker Card

Pin It
Can you believe the shaped cards hidden away on the Cricut Summer Celebrations cartridge?  Here's another fun one - the shaped firecracker card!  Love this guy!

I cut it in white at 9" and then just layered it up.  I used red glitter paper for the striped area and decided to cut the tip and end of the firecracker in silver glitter paper. A quick go around with the white signo uniball pen and I was set.  This card will fit in a standard business sized envelope.
The inside has a stamped sentiment.  A nice quick and easy card!

I've been making so many of these patriotic cards as I just joined the Daughters of the American Revolution and I want to thank the people who helped make that happen.  My mom did all the tireless genealogy research - thank you, Mom! She's given my daughter and I a wonderful gift in this!

  6. What a sweet card! The doodling around the firecracker is just perfect!

    Thanks for such a great giveaway. I've had my eye on Dr. Checkup for a few months now. I'd love to win!

    I know you've done tutorials in the past with iron-on vinyl, but I'd love to see more of those with projects using a variety of fabrics. I'm especially interested in the settings/procedure you use to actually iron the vinyl on. Thanks!

  11. That is one adorable little firecracker card!! I would love to get busy and make a couple of those to send to out of state family!! I would love to see more tutorials on layering vinyl and if you dont already have a video about making those Sweet Surprises cards that you have posted with the little sweet treat holders, I would love to see that too. I bought some a long time ago when they first came out and when they were a hot item to have and they are still in my stash!!
