Cricut Stand and Salute Card using fireworks!

Here's a quick card I whipped up tonight...ha ha! Don't I make it sound easy? Let me tell you, there's glitter everywhere on my scrapbook desk. I love the Martha Stewart glitter but I can sure spread it around some!

I used white glitter paper (which doesn't show up in the photo but it's there!) for the fireworks themselves and then shadowed it with red paper, which I then covered with red glitter using a Zig 2-way glue pen and then quickly sprinkling glitter over it and all other available surfaces. Finally, using heavy duty glue dots and pop dots, I managed to stick the two layers of fireworks together and then onto yet another glittery paper, this one black, like the sky looks. I then added red and blue papers behind it, and mounted the whole thing on a white card. The word "Liberty" is also on this cart. I love the "L" shape in "Liberty" - it reminds me of Laverne's sweaters on Laverne & Shirley.

I am having so much fun with this cartridge! Stay tuned for a video and more projects today and all week! Ok, now its 2:15 am and I really am going to bed...really, I am....


  1. I love it!!

    That's so funny because that is what I was going to work on today, too!! I'll have to make mine a layout. :)

    You are the best!!! I'm so happy we get to do this together!

  2. I love the card! It's sparkly, just like the 4th of July!

  3. Just awesome! Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativity with us.


  4. That is too cute. I notice that glitter and embossing powders seem to get everywhere so I use a old piece of posterboard/tag board and it's seems to come right off. I'm going to try the embossing baggies (looks like th bowling powder bag) to coat the surface for easier clean up.
