It is almost time to celebrate Independence Day in the U.S. and I decided that this year I'd make and send a variety of Independence Day cards using various patriot stamps, papers and embellishments on hand.
This sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkadoo rubber stamps. I rarely just stamp sentiments without some type of image but I don't think this one needs anything else. Lately I've been admiring so many talented paper artist's work who incorporate stamping on the inside of their cards as well as the envelopes. It is such a wonderful finished and professional look so I'm experimenting with small inside embellishing as well as the envelope. I'm not sure if you can see from this side view photo but I've used one of Michael's $1 bin sets (July) and used the CELEBRATE stamp from it. Also I got out a tiny star punch and punched the corners.
More patriotic cards to follow. Since I'm mailing to the U.S. from Canada I need to get them in the mail.
