Seeing stars

Hello bloggers, hope you are having a great Memorial Day! I have a patriotic card for you. It is my DT card for the Paper Crafting World Memorial Day Challenge.
This cute little guy is made from one of Melin's cut files over at Paper Crafting World. He is actually the "boy bear blowing bubbles" file but I decided this pose was just perfect to hold up a little flag.
(you can click the name of the folder and purchase this adorable file of Melin's for just $2)

I made a cute little cut file for the "fun flag" behind the bear.(see link at bottom of post)  Memorial Day makes me think of picnics so I thought of the red and white checks. For the stars, I knew I could not fit 50 stars in that little space and expect my cutter to tackle the job. I decided to just use a few stars and vary the sizes.

While making the stars, I went ahead and made some simple card  and embellishment files that have stars cut out of them. I have not made projects with them yet but wanted to go ahead and share the cut files so here are some pictures of the files.

These cards start off as 8.5 by 5.5. Once you fold them they are 5.5 by 4.25 (A2)

These cards are 11 by 4.25 and fold at the top to make an A2 card.

These files include a cut out to put on a project, a front panel for an A2 card and a card that will fold over to make an A2 card.

These files are no longer available. If you really, really want them, you can email me at
and I will send them to you. 

Head on over and join us for the Paper Crafting World Memorial Day challenge. The theme is, of coarse, Memorial Day and you are just required to use a cut file on your project.
