Celebrate Fourth of July Card


When it comes to making cards to celebrate Independence Day, I only make a few. I send them to close family only. My stamp collection for this holiday is pretty much nonexistent. I do however have a good selection of patterned papers. To create this Celebrate Fourth of July Card I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches designed by my crafty friend Jessi Fogan. I did a quick search and noticed several cards made using the retired Celebrate Today stamp from the Perfectly Penned stamp set by Stampin' Up!, so that's what I used. It's been in my collection for at least three years and doesn't get used that often. This seemed like the perfect card to dust it off. I stamped the ready made tag with the sentiment and two stars from a very old sale-a-bration stamp set. I adhered everything together, added the gingham ribbon and three silver sequins for a little sparkle. That's it!

This Celebrate Fourth of July Card is entered into the following challenges:

  2. So love your card! It shows patriotism but most importantly a "sparkle" that comes from the layout and details. Thanks so much for sharing with Retro Rubber this week. Hope you will come and see us next week, wink, wink.

  3. A lovely patriotic card! In Canada we do not send or make Canada Day cards. Our colours are red and white. I always enjoy seeing the American July 4 cards - it's a lovely colour combo!
