CropStop Friday Embossing - July 2nd

I decided to go with a "Happy Birthday USA" card today for my CropStop embossing project. I don't actually mail out 4th of July cards, but sometimes it's fun to make them. Later on, I'll probably pry off the 4th of July greeting and exchange it for a birthday message or something. All four of my brothers served in the military, so this theme would make a good card for any of them....if I wanted to actually mail them a card. {grin}

I used the Cuttlebug Measure by Measure number border folder and the Cuttlebug Stars A2 folder. The Measure by Measure set is new and I think this is my first time using any of the folders from the set. It's pretty cool.

I rubbed a bit of red ink onto the "4" to make it stand out. The mini greeting is Close to My Heart and the printed paper is Jenni Bowlin.

CropStop is having a 15% off sale on all Sizzix embossing folders, and if you buy 5 Stickles you get one FREE. Plus you can get another 10% off any purchase over $30.
