FCCB #304 - Patriotism!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!

Challenge #304-Patriotism
Make a project about patriotism in any country!

This Weeks Sponsor

Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I was so excited about the challenge this week since it's Canada's 150th birthday this year on July 1st! I love the Canadian logo that has been designed to celebrate, and I knew I wanted to use it on a Happy Canada Day card, so I saved a photo from an online search and uploaded it onto Cricut Design Space and then saved that as a cut file. I was so pleased at how nicely the maple leave cut out! I layered it over the Celebrate Card cut, which is a background of tiny circle cuts from the Simple Celebrations Cricut Cartridge.

I am really loving the Wild Whisper Strong & Free Collection, new this month, and I knew it would be perfect to add to my card! I'll be sharing lots more from this fabulous collection all month long!

Over on May Flaum's blog she's holding a FREE Camp Scrap class with lots of daily inspiration, and her challenge to use Stamps was just the inspiration I needed to grab these awesome new Wild Whisper Strong & Free Stamps for my card.

 She also reminded me to use those smaller stamps - so I grabbed some patriotic emblems and stamped both on the outside and the inside of my card! 

I added a bit of shimmer from some Tim Holtz mica spray on the yellow background under the diecut card base, which gives a little shine peeking through. And, of course, I had to add some pretty SpiegelMom Scraps sequins for a little extra bling! I can't wait to give this to someone special to help them celebrate Canada Day too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to head over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what all the other designers have come up with today - and enter your own patriotic project with a Cricut cut for a chance to win!
