3 cheers for the red, white and blue!

Oh boy!  I don't know about you but the new thinlits die of Tim's that features all 50 states is a bugger to use!  Here are 3 options...I was hoping I could make 2 from each die cut but quickly realized that wasn't going to happen.  Waaaay too fiddly!  But after the pieces are removed, you're left with a stencil.  Now that I could work with for my 4th of July card.

This paper was pieced and run through my Xyron.  Let me tell you, those itty bitty eastern states almost didn't remain part of the 13 colonies!  Sheesh!

But here's the stenciled version...much more user friendly (for me!).
