Hello, My Friend





Clearsnap is Made in the USA so what better time to celebrate that fact than on the 4th of July!

Hop along with the Clearsnap  team as they share patriotic projects to ring in this Independence Day here in the US.

Start at the Clearsnap blog   for your chance to win one of our EXCLUSIVE Limited Edition 3 Color Red, White, and Blue ColorBox Pigment Inkpads!!


In honor of Independence Day, I created a red, white and blue tri fold card.

Cut cardstock 5 1/2" x 11" and score at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4".
Fold on the score lines creating a tri-fold card.
Cut cardstock and music pattern paper to fit each panel.
Ink the music paper with blue ink, moving the ink into each panel.  The Petal Point Ink pads allow you to add just a little ink with the pointed tip or a lot more ink with the rounded end.

Mat with cardstock and adhere to the card.
Stamp sentiment with red ink on white cardstock and emboss with clear embossing powder.
Ink the edges with red ink and mat with blue cardstock before adhering  to the card.

Adhere this piece to the left side of the card.

  17. I never thought to make a Fourth of July card using images from non-patriotic collections ... but you prove that using red/white/blue cardstock with them can work (nice touch, the music sheet!)
