Patriotic Buntings for the 4th – by Deb Saaranen

Good Friday morning!

We are back today with another Americana themed patriotic card, this one created by Deb Saaranen. I’m simply giddy over the fun buntings she created using our Fishtail Sentiment Banners die set. She chose the perfect papers for her bunting and simply adhered the fishtail die cut pieces over some twine to give the appearance of  hanging banners to create her bunting. I’m loving this idea and can see it done up in a variety of different themes. Take a look:

How fun is this – both to create, to gift and to receive!

Our Fishtail Sentiment Banners die set has 10 different size banners in it, making it so easy to find just the right size for your sentiments AND to create fun card embellishments like Deb has done on today’s card.

Here’s a closer look.

Our Patriotic Sentiments stamp set has the little stars and sentiments for all your patriotic themed cards, year round.

And here’s the inside, using a fun collage type sentiment also included in Patriotic Sentiments.

The stamped red star for accent is perfect!

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
