|Make this 4th of July card.|
I use Studio G ink in black and blue. I cant believe of all the stamps I have that I don't have a Happy 4th of July. So I took the Happy Birthday stamp and used masking taped and masked off the Birthday part of it.
From my last years 4th of July card you can see we used brown paint for the stick and a brown gem for the top of the flake pole. We also used silver star stickers for the stars of the flag. I wanted to include different textures this time so we used the Popsicle stick and the star gems from my stash.
I believe if you want to mail this it will take 2 stamps because of the weight but you can take it to the post office and get it weighed to see exactly. Most times I just stick 2 forever stamps on top because I don't have time to stand in line with a 3.5 year old and a almost 8 month old.
The inside of the card says From Our Family To Yours and I let Lexi girl use the star stamp to stamp a few stars inside. I also have matching 4th of July outfits for the girls to wear.. I will be taking a picture of them with the outfits on and sending that to family along with the cards.
