This is a group shot of most of the cards that I made for my nieces and nephews and 2 of my friend’s kids. I try to send a card with either stickers or a $1 bill in it to my N & N’s each holiday. It’s a fun way to keep in touch with them and the kids get such a thrill out of getting mail too.
I used my Imaginisce Crab and Imaginisce Whale stamps for some of the cards. For the sailboat card I used the Stampin’ Up Sail Away stamp set and I hand wrote the sentiment. The star for the card in the front center was hand cut and I added a button that says Liberty on it. (I have no idea where this button came from because I’ve had it for eons!)
crustaceans and pyrotechnics!
I hope you have a whale-y good time this 4th of July!
For my 12 year old nephews (My sister Nancy has 3 boys all 12 years old!) I wanted to create something a little more mature but still festive. I used the Sail Away set from Stampin’ Up to make this card. I hand wrote the sentiment with a white gel pen.
(FYI my walls are not green. I took these photos at night and the pendant lights that hang above my kitchen island are green. The lights don’t make the walls look green to the naked eye but the camera captured the green light that pendants must cast.)
Happy 4th of July,
