Here's a quick coupla 4th of July cards that I mailed out to family. I found this pelican stamp and sentiment from Inkadinkado in the $1 section at JoAnn's. (They're in the same pack too. Funny that that sentiment was with the pelican though, huh?!) We see lots of pelicans both in FL at the in-laws and at the beach we go to in summer so I just had to have it. But what's the pelican have to do with the 4th? I think it just goes back to the fact that we go to the beach for this week each year and, you know, pelicans...beach...fireworks...etc. Sounds good to me...let's go with that!
I used various patterned paper from October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket on these. I also used a few different dies: the large label and the circle from Spellbinders, the stars from PTI (These are solid dies but I used a tiny piece of tape to put the small one in the center of the larger one and cut them at the same time. Voila! An open star plus another star for decorating!), and the word bubble from MFT. I added baker's twine and a little rhinestone to finish it off - wanting to keep these fairly low profile so that I could pop 'em in the mail without the major search for envies to fit. Worked!
Hope you and yours are celebrating a fabulous
Independence Day today!
