Flag Shaped Card

Used Cricut cartridge, Summer Celebrations, which is available to me to use since I have a subscription on the Online Design Space. Added a white piece to the inside by copying the red piece & using contour option to indicate parts to not cut.

Heat embossed the sentiment using some red/white/blue embossing powder that I mixed together.
