A Yooper 4th of July – by Deb Saaranen

Moving right along to the 4th of July —

Deb created this FABULOUS 4th of July card for those who live in, visit or just plain LOVE the Yoop! 4th of July is a pretty big deal up here but, sadly, this year will be different. A lot of the celebrations have already been cancelled, so I imagine the big events will be grilling or beaching it with family and friends – which is good, too! Take a look at Deb’s card:

This happy, summery themed Yooper card just makes me smile!

I know the recipients of a card like this will be thrilled to pieces!!!

Deb used our NEW Old Glory stamp set with our Upper Peninsula of Michigan (UP) die set.

Deb applied strips of paper from the America paper pad by Echo park to white printer paper.

She then cut the UP shape with the UP die from that “striped” paper she made.

Then Deb cut a couple more UP shapes from white cardstock and layered them to create this chipboard type Upper Peninsula.

What a GREAT look!

A card sure to please any Yooper lover out there – guaranteed!

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

Deb used only the die set today, not the stamp set, but I did want to show them both you.

Stamp set and die set available individually or bundled.

These are the two new sets in our latest release:

Old Glory Stamp Set and Patriotic Stars & Stripes (Old Glory) Steel Dies

Deb used only the stamp set today.

Here are the two NEW sets along side our original Patriotic Sentiments.

These sets all coordinate and work together beautifully.

The flag/map die can be used with its coordinating stamp or as a stand alone die of the United States.

The 2 largest stars in the die set fit the 2 largest stars in Patriotic Sentiments.

The smallest star in the die set fits the small star in Old Glory.

The stars can also be used as stand alone dies.

These items are all available individually or bundled for your convenience.
