I love celebrating the 4th of July and honoring our freedom. I created a layout that will feature a picture of my son this coming 4th. I started with my Gypsy:
Birthday Bash for the 4 sized to 2.76 inches.
George for the star sized to 9 inches.
Billionaire for the "th" sized to 1.12 inches and welded.
Lyrical Letters for "of" and "July" sized to 1 and 1.47 inches.
I originally cut all of these out of white cardstock, but the letters and number were getting lost on my page, so I re-cut them in blue cardstock.
I did cut the regular layer of the 4 and ended up only using the regular (not the shadow layer) of it.
I found the Freedom from Independence Day and sized it to 1 and 1.24 inches. Used the bigger one on the layout.
These cuts were made with blue cardstock.
I needed some smaller stars. I went back to George and sized them 1 and 1.12 inches. I cut both sizes out of red and blue cardstock.
I use the negative cuts as my template when placing my letters and titles on a page.
I tied some twine around the 4 and pop-dotted it to the page.
I used a circle punch to hold the "th" and pop-dotted it to the page.
I added Freedom on the bottom with some ribbon and stars.
I will slide in a photo from the 4th of my son in all his firework glory!!! I tied twine and pop-dotted a star on the photo mat.
