Instructions for the Patriotic card

I appreciate all the kind comments about this card this week. I am going to try to show how you can create it. This is my first attempt at a tutorial on here so, I hope it works!!!!! Here is the finished card. 
The Cardbase is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 Crumb Cake. The other pieces are Natural White 5 1/4 x 5 1/4, 4 3/4 x 4 3/4, and 2 1/2 x 5 1/4. You also need a scrap of Natural White for the scallop punch in the center and scraps of torn Cherry Cobbler for the strips. Finally, a piece  2 1/2 by 2 3/4 of Night of Navy finishes the flag. All the stamping is done in Night of Navy. The star stamp is from Pennant Parade and the Trust God saying from Trust God stamp set.

First, randomly stamp all the large pieces with the star stamp in Night of Navy. Adhere the 5 1/4 square inside the card. Add a piece of Night of Navy stitched ribbon to the front of the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4" piece and tie a faux bow or knot.

Glue torn strips of Cherry Cobbler to 4 1/2" square.

Add small Night of Navy piece to upper left corner. Lay this piece right side down on 4 1/2 scallop circle Bigz die and run through the Big Shot. Next place the cut piece in the square lattice folder with the front away from the Sissix label.
Apply Stazon On Whaite Ink to Night of Navy embossed piece to look like stars. the finally step is to stamp the saying and punch it out with the 2 3/8 scallop punch. dust around the punch with Night of Navy ink and glue to the center of scallop flag. adhere to front of card and you are finished!!!!!
