For this layout I first cut my mats and frames out of various shades of card stock and patterned paper. For the stars and stripes patterned paper I used a digital background file from LSHD and printed it onto plain white card stock to create my own custom paper that coordinated perfectly with my layout. I then cut out the little kids and fireworks with my Explore from plain and glitter card stock. Next I inked and chalked all of the paper edges and then assembled them. Lastly I placed all of my elements on the page and attached them with foam tape.
The next project I want to share is my 4th of July Eagle Card! Right now this little guy is the weekly freebie pattern over at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs! Be sure to pick him up if you don't have him already!
