Fourth of July Cards
I love sending handmade cards for all the holidays. It's a great way to keep in touch with distant friends and relatives. Thye don't have to be elaborate and it's a great way to use up scraps. My focal point for these cards was a kaleidoscope made from a scanned flag in Kaleidoscope Kreator. Using the same flag, the blue field and stars were enlarged slightly then cut with a punch and attached to the flag pinwheel with a brad. The center square twirls around for a fun touch. The backgrounds varied as you can see from these 4 cards. I went through my supplies and used any paper that fit the color scheme.
