Creative Card: "Good Luck"

This card is for my oldest nephew.  He will be heading off to boot camp in the next week.  I know it's not very masculine, but I'm sure his mom will probably hang on to it.  :)  I'm also entering this card in the  Fantabulous Cricut Challenge's "Challenge Me Monday Challenge."  You still have time to enter a 4th of July themed project featuring a star.

Materials Used:
  • 5" x 5" Easel Card: 5" x 10" scored at 2 1/2" and 5."  5" x 5" square for the front - check out Nicole from The Canadian Nickel Scrap'n's video tutorial - HERE!  
  • Square cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4." I welded 4 stars sized at .94" from George and Basic Shapes
  • Fireworks cut at 4 1/2" from Wild Card using real dial size
  • EK Success Border Punch - dotten scallop
  • Buttons from Michael's
  • 3/8" Gingham Ribbon from Michael's
