Patriotic 3D Gable Box Square

Created this Clean & Simple CAS Patriotic Gable Box Square using Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Cricut cartridge.

Wanted to make it CAS because most people at a party will not end up keeping it and will just toss it. It can be used for a Summer 4th of July party.

Embossed the Kraft americana strip with Cuttlebug Stars with Stripes embossing border. Used 2 different inks to stamp sentiment. Added ribbon.

embossing: Cuttlebug Stars with Stripes - subtle on Kraft americana cardstock strip
