Patriotic Table Tent Card

My friend Meighen over at Scrappin' 3rdeeschick asked me to be her guest designer on her blog and the Table Tent Card below is what I shared.  Drop over to her blog and say hello!  She has a Beach Blog Hop going on right now you'll enjoy.



Here's how I made it:
-Fold 8-1/2" x 11" red cs in half, lengthwise. Set aside.
-Cut your white cs at 3-1/2" x 10". You'll stamp on this.
-Stamp your background image "We the people" with red inkpad.
  I had to stamp it 3 times to fill up the white cs. See close up
  on photo#2.
-Ink all the edges of white cs with sand beige inkpad.
-With Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge, cut  "freedom"on
  navy  blue cs: key 16, type, 1-1/2".
-With A Child's Year Cricut cartridge, cut "kids/flag" on navy
  blue cs: key 18, shift, 3".
-With pop dots, adhere the "kids" to left side of cs as per photo.
-With tape runner, adhere the words "freedom" to the right side
  of the kids.
-Now we will adhere the stamped white cs to the red cs.
-With red inkpad, stamp the "star" image on a metal-rimmed tag.
  Thread twine thru hole and adhere just under the letter "M".
  See photo #3.

This side is just as easy and fun to make! 
Here's how I made this:

  angle to fill the  3-1/2 x 10" white cs.  See close-up photo #2.

  the eagle,  statue of liberty and fireworks as per photo.
-With sand beige inkpad, ink all the edges of the white cs.

  key 16, icon blackout, 1-1/2" .
-Pop-dot stars and place on white cs as per photo.
-With same Cricut cartridge, cut "usa" : key 16, 1-1/4".

That's it!  Your two-sided Patriotic Table Tent card is now ready to be used. If you wanted to dress it up more, you could add stars to the top of the tent card similar to these that are on this altered paint can:

Its the great idea and same as I thought the idea for this recently on the internet and really wanted to give it a try. Then last week at a church activity we had a swap table where there was a pink double flat bed sheet up for grabs, and grab it I did! With this in mind for it... table tents
