CAS 4th of July cards

I had to make a truck load of 4th of July cards and I have no cartridges with 4th of July related items (I have fireworks on Stretch Your Imagination, but I used them last year!) so I CASED a cute Uncle Sam punch art piece from this talented lady at Dostamping with Dawn.

Simple dimple Uncle sam made with 3 SU! punches.  Stars are cricutted from Plantin Schoolbook and embossed in gold.  Paper is by Deja Views and SU! I also used Peachy Keen's funshine faces for his cute little face and chalked his cheeks up.  Sentiment is an old SU! stamp set that I cut up to just say "celebrate."  

Even though this is a simple card, I started working on the elements about a month ago!  I made all the Uncle Sams and gold stars a LONG time ago.  Sometimes working in bulk can be time consuming!

Awesome card!! I just love how you found a way to work out the no cricut cart situation. I was looking for something that would work for me and I think I have found it. Thanks for the inspiration. And I just love the CAS. That is the best way to go when you have some many to make.
Thanks for playing along in the Simply Sunday challenge. I hope to see you next week.
