Stars and Banners

Valentyna, (2)Hello!
It’s time for the new challenge over BTBB2 and theme  for this week is Stars and Banners, chosen by Michelle. And here is my Let’s Celebrate card. I used image from Independence Day – Celebration digital set. I wanted to make a fireworks and decided not print it, because I simply don’t like how it prints. I changed settings to write and cut.
After choosing image, I turned off few underneath layers, I didn’t need them.
axThan changed settings for those I wanted to use. Write for the fireworks.
az And left cut for the stars
asTogether before cutting it looked like this
aaThen I just follow instructions and put different colours of pen in slot after every layer. I used Slick Writers. I have pack of 18 – 9 with fine tip and 9 with medium. They work pretty well with Cricut Explore.
IMG_3924After writing and cutting it looked a little bit weird. I had to colour some spots with the same markers.
IMG_3925Next step – cutting the main panel using rectangular die and stamping the sentiment.
IMG_3957This is pretty much it.

Thank you for topping by!
Have a great day!

    What a wonderful card for Independence day! Great Idea to have your Explore draw the fireworks instead of cut them!! Again, I love the embossed stitched edge – so neat looking. And your sentiment is so clean and bright! Love that.

    Your card is very cool looking Valentyna! I love how you did the write and cut feature on the Explore. I also love that you colored in your fireworks, I like it much better this way. What a fun and festive card!!! Hugs, Brenda

    love that 4th of July card and the others that you published recently. I tried to cut this fireworks cut and it was a disaster, so I used a pen too and then cut the outside shape. I love your version so much, I’ll have to give it a try. Have a great holiday.

    Loved seeing how you made it! I agree it looks better the way you colored it in-much more striking! I’m going to have to try the pens at some point…Hope you had a marvelous 4th!
