4th of July Cricut Crawl Challenge # 167 Red White and Blue


Welcome to the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!

In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl.  Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!

If you've come from Heather's blog you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut to start at the beginning.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog!  There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB!


For my project I created a 4th of July card!!! I used the George And Basic Shapes an Cindy Loo cartridges.  Added a little faux stitching and a handcut banner and voila!! A perfect card!!



Oh, but wait!!! Don't leave yet!! I am offering some blog candy!! So what do you have to do? Easy....Just leave me a comment answering this question:  "What is your favorite thing to do on the 4th of July?"

  1. Great card especially thinking outside the box (pun intended) and using two cartridges not normally that would come to mind when doing a patriotic themed item.

    My favorite thing to do on 4th of July? Back before my Mom and Dad passed away, they would always hold a family crawfish fest or catfish fry with fireworks at their house. I miss them every day but especially around the holidays. My Dad had a wonderful love of the 4th of July.

  5. Such a cute card! Love the red star cutout--is that glittery fabric used?

    My favorite thing to do on the Fourth of July is sparklers with my niece and nephew. No matter how old you get, they're still a fun tradition and I love the excitement in their faces when they light them and wave them around.

    Thanks for your post!

  16. Very cute project. I love the banner. My favorite thing to do on the 4th would be to sleep in, make a big breakfast, lie by the pool and watch my hubby bbq. But I have to be at work at 6:30. So this year my favorite thing will be getting off work.

  20. On the 4th of July every year my family gets together at my house, play around the pool, cook fun food.........and eat. The family is smaller after losing our parents, but my siblings and I are very close. We celebrate all holidays together (as well as many other times during the year).

    Your card is wonderful. Thank you for your inspiration.

  23. Your card is amazing!! I love your design choice of having the banner running through the middle of the card. My favorite thing to do for the 4th of July is Skype my son who is in the Navy, unless he is underway. Nothing like seeing my sailor on the day we celebrate our independence. Thank you for sharing.
