Chibi Uncle Sam from SVG Cutting Files

     As the guest designer for the month of June, it's my day to post at  This week I'm feeling very patriotic and thinking about the 4th of July and celebration of our country and freedom.  I chose to use the Chibi Uncle Sam file and the Center Step Zig Zag Card Base.  I love the center step cards and the set of 7 is definitely a great deal!   

Card Stock: 
Red, Flesh, White, Black, Blues (Navy, Denim, and Light), 
Creative Memories Printed Star
Stickles, Velum Sticker, White Gel Pen, Ink for antiquing

I'm always impressed with how well the Silhouette machine cuts such small details.  These stars are less than 1/8 of an inch and they cut perfectly.  I couldn't throw them out so I added them to the hat and his shirt.

I love the dimension the zig zag step card gives and well it stands up on it's own.  I added foam dots to the back of Uncle Sam so he stood out from the card.  

Hope this inspires you to make something patriotic!
