Happy 4th of July – by Holly McMillen

$2.50 Shipping within the US – Current Shipping Special!

Good Monday morning! Holly starts our week off with a festive card for the 4th of July. This card brings visions of a typical year when our town has the long-awaited parade and other festivities. Everyone is dressed in red, white and blue with children lining the streets, waving their flags, waiting for the parade (and especially all the fire trucks and floats that throw candy into the crowd). A super fun card – take a look:

What a cute little boy waving his flag!

The boy is stamped using our Stick Family  set. Holly  hand drew the flag in his hand.

The 4th of July sentiment is from our Old Glory set.

The festive papers are from the America pad by Echo Park.

I love the hairdo and head gear Holly gave this cute little guy.

I also find it of interest that Holly took the larger male figure in the set (typically the Dad or Grandpa) and turned him into this fun and festive little boy.

She stamped his head to just above the eyebrows, drew on the hat and added those curls.

And the freckles are such a fun touch!!!

What a fun and festive card to commemorate the 4th of July!

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