Happy 4th of July!!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday morning. I decided to make a 4th of July card for my dad. I used my Slice with the Summer SD and the Words & Expressions SD. I made a gate fold simple card. It measures 4x4 closed and 4x8 opened. I cut an 8x4 piece of red cardstock. I scored 2" from both ends. Then I cut 4 pieces of cardstock 1/8" less. Same with the pattern paper. The title was cut at 3 1/2" , the rockets at 2" and 2 1/2". The inside sparkles were cut at 3".



closed


opened


I hope you enjoy this 4th of July. And hopefully you join me tomorrow for a DCD challenge ;)

This card is being entered in the following challenges:
