Fourth of July - full page design (by request)

In September, I was asked by a Cricut Message Board friend if I could create a Fourth of July design similar to my Halloween design for an event at her church where the theme was holidays through the year - her month was July. She had located some glass vases like the one I used for the Halloween lantern and was planning to make these as table decorations and favors for the other guests to take home. Unfortunately, she did not take a picture (she is hoping to "borrow" one back for a photo) so I don't have a lantern version photo to share but I did test cut the design after I got home (I was in New Jersey when I got her email). I think it also works well as a framed piece. Here is a LINK to the post about the Halloween design as a framed piece.

Once again this is cut on a 12 x 24 mat with the paper placed at the one inch mark. Here is a screen shot of the design.

and here is a photo of the design on the mat after cutting so you can see the paper placement a bit better.

The look varies, as always, depending on the paper you choose to place behind the cut - here are a few examples...

  2. Glad your back. Love these ideas. I've been more creative with my cricut since I found your blog. Keep up the good work!

  3. This mesh is so much fun. My B-Day is the 5th so I'll have to figure out how to adjust it for my own celebration. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Your holiday meshes are AWESOME! Thank you so much for sharing.
