Card Tutorial: 4th of July

I have a little card tutorial to share with you guys today!  It was featured in our newsletter a few weeks ago, but if you missed the newsletter here it is.   I thought it was relavant with the 4th of July quickly approaching.  The collection used is We R Memory Keepers Red, White, and Blue.  Hope you enjoy!

MDcardSupplies Used:
Red White & Blue Solid Textured Cardstock-Dark Blue
Red White & Blue 6×6 Paper Pad
Red White & Blue Mini Pinwheels
Paper Trimmer & Scissors
Tape Runner & Glossy Accents
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher or Stapler
Prima Distressing Tool (Optional)
Bone Folder (Optional)


  • Cut Solid Textured Dark Blue Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
  • Fold in half on the 8 1/2" side, and crease with a bone folder
  • Distress edges (optional) 

**Tip for distressing:  Line paper up to the edge of your craft table (you may NOT want to try this with your kitchen table), and use the sanding side of a Prima Comfort Craft Distressing Tool  to distress.  This makes distressing easier, and reduces the danger of sanding your fingers (ouch!).


  • Using the 6×6 paper pad, cut the following pieces (pictured from left to right):

5" x 1", 4" x 1/2", 5 1/4" x 4", and "Firework Show" banner

  • Distress edges (optional)
  • MDcard-9Attach a 3" piece of scrap paper to the pinwheel using a stapler or Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher


  • Assemble cut pieces as shown
  • Adhere pinwheel and banner (using Glossy Accents)


MDcard-4Pretty easy, and very cute!
