Today begins the 4th of July weekend here in the USA so I made this 4th of July Flag Card with Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to start the celebration! This is a big holiday weekend (as it falls this year) for families often with travel, family gatherings, picnics, and certainly fireworks! Be sure to fly your flag, if you have one. We have a realtor who always places American flags at every house in the whole neighborhood so it looks quite festive and patriotic!
I had seen versions of this card made with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, I changed mine just a little bit. These Swirly Scribbles Thinlits are just ripe for all kinds of creativity! You just have to start die-cutting pieces in various colors and see what comes to your mind to make! I cut about three strips of the wavy thinlit in Real Red to represent the flag’s stripes, adhered on Whisper White. You might need to add in some of the “scraps” from the die to fill in some empty space. I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the thin strips. Just put tiny dots of glue. For the star field I just cut a rectangle to fit in Night of Navy cardstock. The stars are diecut from the strip of stars in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies. (I keep telling you how much I love that batch of dies!!) I die cut them from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
If you don’t need a 4th of July card, make this but adhere it to some layers and frame it for a home decor item for the holiday! Either way, just play with your new Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies and see if you come up with a card for the 4th of July or some other project!
