Let Freedom Ring





When I found out that the theme @ Erica's Craft Room was 
FOURTH OF JULY using the STAND & SALUTE 
Cricut Cartridge I had to share my story about the 
Card for the Troops for Martin Luther King Jr 
Day of Service @ my church 


The "Let Freedom Ring" and Liberty Bell" are found on page 30

Liberty Bell cut @ 2.5"
Let Freedom Ring cut @ 3"


This is basically the card that we would do.
I have the kids six and up make the back ground Pattern Paper
with White Card Stock, Red and White Acrylic Paint and Shaving Cream


This is a big hit with kids of all ages
This is a project the parents love to do with their children


Before the event I cut out about 200 of so of each image needed for the cards
The cards for this post I used EK Success 3D-Dots 
to the Liberty Bell made from Craft Paper Card Stock
that was colored in Ranger's "Perfect Gold" Perfect Pearls

I accented the top of the bell and crack with Ranger's "Copper" Stickles


Every year I look forward to heading up this event
Even though we do not do any 3-D effects the mass card production for the Troops
the card come out great.


I hope that you enjoyed the project as much as I love doing and sharing it.
Happy crafting and thanks for looking
