4th of July card #2

I wanted to make a few more simple 4th of July cards so I took to Pinterest again and found this design.

 I am using some Stamps of Life card stock that I have collected from their card kits but can also be bought seperately.

The red and blue are perfect for flag colors.

I am using a Fiskars border punch, I cut strips to size 5 1/4 wide by 1 inch tall.
 I am using a black card base.

I am also using some sticky tape to adhere them.

I start of with the a red strip and add it almost to the top, leaving just about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of black on the top and sides.
 I also add just a solid piece of white card stock on the bottom.

The sticky tape needs to be near the top so that you can easily slide the other pieces right under.

They will not go all they way to the top just right under the scallops, I tested this with out adhesive before I began using adhesive to make sure they were sized accordingly.
The blue square is 2 1/4 inches by 2 1/2 inches.

I measured from the top of the red to just above the scallops of the second red, I used a thicker sticky tape along the blue piece.

I punched out nine stars per card with a Stampin UP star punch and used some small adhesive circle foam peices to adhere them.
 The stars are some silver glitter paper that you can purchase at your favorite craft store.

I took some extra blue and red to decorate the inside.

I also added a 4 by 5 1/4 inch white mat to the inside of the card.
Finished cards.
