Celebrate! for Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Celebrate!  It's not too long now until Independence Day here in the US.  My small town goes all out.  It's the 2nd biggest day of the year, next to Christmas.  The population of our city is just over 2000 people, but on July 4th, we swell to over 10,000.  The crowds love our festivities, too!

To start getting in the patriotic spirit of the 4th of July, I created this card using the Cupcake image from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez, and went with a patriotic twist, then made it into a shaker card for even more of a festive feel. 

I colored the cupcake digi with Copic markers, then fussy cut it. The patriotic papers are also from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez.  They are the Red & Blue basics collection.  Don't they work well for this shaker card?

Well, that's it for me for today.  I have to get out the bunting, the flags, find the sparklers, get Gracie the dog decorated -- there's TONS to do before the 4th of July!  

I hope you find time to visit the Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Store, and the Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Facebook Group.  
You'll be glad you did!

  1. Very cute patriotic card! Yes, the shaker just adds to the fun of the holiday! Our town sounds exactly like yours... gotta get all the grocery shopping done and any business taken care of ASAP before the out-of-towners take over! Even our internet service falls apart! But really pretty cool to celebrate our liberty right in our own little community! 🇺🇸
