Hi everyone!  Happy Fourth of July!  Above is a set of cards I made using those vintage image books that come with a CD so you can print the images as many times as you like (hopefully you know what I'm talking about! lol).  I set up the printing so I would get 4 images on a sheet of 8.5 x 11" cream cardstock and cut the girl out with my circle Nestabilties, careful to leave the flag outside of the circle. 

Next up I punched some stars out of a vintage book, some kraft cardstock and the red DCWV patterned paper (you can't see where I punched the star because I covered it with the blue cardstock ;).. sneaky huh??  lol  Then I die-cut the banner with my Nestabilities and stamped it with a Clear & Simple sentiment in Cranberry Colorbox ink.  I distressed the edges with Creamy Brown Colorbox ink. 

The middle layer has Stampin' Up! ribbon, navy cardstock and lighter blue cardstock punched with a Fiskars border.  I really like how these different supplies came together, from the swirly sentiment to the patterned paper and the text stars, to complement the vintage image.  I hope you enjoy this card set and have a safe and happy Fourth of July!  I'll be back tomorrow with some patriotic jelly bean tubes!
