FCCB 4th of July Cricut Crawl - Red, White & Blue!

Welcome to Mollie's Motif and the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!

In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl. Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!

If you've come from Connie at Connie Can Crop, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut HERE to start at the beginning.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog! There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB!

For my project I kept it pretty simple! I used some muted Red, White, and Blue colors instead of the bright traditional colors.  I cut three stars from George, embossed them with Swiss Dots, then inked them up with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I found some fun 4th of July paper at Hobby Lobby and used my We R Memory Keepers SewEasy for the stitching along the side (I'm still trying to master that tool).  I did ink the edges of my base card with some of the same ink as the stars and I don't have a distressing tool, but I did use my fingernail to rough up the edges a bit (anyone else do that?)  Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying our "crawl"!!!

Your next stop is Felicia at Sweet Creative Mess. Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!

Happy Crawling!!

Here is the line up in case you get lost:
