Juneteenth Card|Hero Arts

 Hola everyone. Thanks for stopping by! Today is Juneteenth-a holiday celebrated on June 19th to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States. Juneteenth is also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day. 

Celebrations began with enslaved people in Galveston, Texas. Although President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves in 1863, it was not enforced in many places in the South until the Civil War ended in 1865. 

News that the war had ended and they were free finally reached the enslaved in Galveston on June 19, 1865, more than two months after Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant in Virginia.

To celebrate today, I created a clean and simple card using the Hero Arts Rainbow Infinity Dies Set. 

Card Instructions
1. Adhere a 4" X 5.25" white cardstock panel to a an A2 card base. 
2. Die-cut the rainbow arcs in Cherry, Mustard and Meadow cardstock
    and adhere to the card panel.
3. Die-cut 1,8,6 and 5 in Pitch Black cardstock; adhere to card front 
    beneath the rainbow. You may use, dies, stickers or even your own
    handwriting for this.
4. Using a hole punch-cut out small circles in Cherry, Mustard and 
    Meadow cardstock; adhere to card. 

Easy right?!?
