This is one of my favorite times of the year! We are a family that loves summer and history and fireworks! Independence Day is always ripe with all of that, wrapped in patriotism and family celebrations. We have lots to celebrate, especially since this is a busy time for our family businesses!
Follow my blog with Bloglovin For fun (and stress relief) I made a quick card to send to someone who has been on my mind. The starry base was created using FREE digital Pink Paislee files! This week only, Pink Paislee is offering free downloads of red-white-and-blue paper patterns and elements that are perfect for the 4th of July! Click here to download yours!

I printed the starry paper on textured card stock.
The banner was cut from Cricut Holiday Frames and Tags (page 35) at 2" from kraft paper and scraps in my stash. The text was cut from Cricut Stand and Salute at 3". For the first time ever, I used the new E6000 spray. (For years, I have used the original E6000 tubes of plastic adhesive. That is the best stuff ever for non-porous stuff.) I tried the spray on this paper project for the back of the text.
It worked great, didn't buckle the paper, and even with a pump sprayer, delivered an even coating of adhesive. The best part: absolutely NO fumes!
I layered it on a blue mat and placed it on a white card base.
Best wishes for a safe and happy July 4th!
