For the curved panel I placed the die cut on top and traced the outline then hand cut the curve.

This card took my breath away -- what a great fresh take on patriotic. I love the swirly die and the way you cut the layers underneath to match. (I have a scrapbook sample from a magazine I've been trying to copy and now you've shared the secret!)

Wow, Rox, this is FABULOUS! I love the swirly die and the flag together with the sanded background. It is all reminiscent of our early beginnings as a nation and now how we celebrate with beautiful fireworks! Perfection!!!
