It just happens to be the season of my favorite holiday too. Fourth of July. You can't get much better than hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, apple pie in the oven and homemade ice cream churning in the ice cream maker....except that you can! Fireworks!! I absolutely love it!
So of course every year I have to add a couple new decorations to the collection. This year I wanted a couple signs I could use all summer long. And it was perfect for this month's Silhouette Challenge theme! (see below for some more awesome patriotic projects)
The 3D star I cut out of cardstock using my Silhouette cameo. I used one of my scrap wood pieces as the background. I painted it white first and used a Moroccan background vinyl stencil to fill in the red. In hindsight, it probably would have been easier if I painted it red to begin with and then just used white vinyl on top of it...but I enjoy a good challenge and the rustic look is just an added bonus.
