Up, Up and Away

With all of the Red, White and Blue challenges and the 4th of July right around the corner, I knew I had to join in on all of the fun!

To make the sentiment, I printed the words on to vellum and punched them out with a circle punch.  I die cut smaller circles using red cardstock, I couldn’t get a small enough border using my Spellbinder dies so used a slightly larger punch and punched around the area of the cardstock that had the diecut removed – so much easier than trying to do the reverse.
