Patriotic Decor for the 4th – by Esther Asbury

Published by at 6 50 am under Uncategorized

Today’s card from Esther put a huge smile on my face! Such a fun card with that all American home town feel. Esther created a patriotic still life scene using items from a few different sets, setting them on a wooden table, backed by striped wallpaper. She even made fun tiny little pinwheels (directions below) to add to the festive summery theme.

A wonderful way to send festive 4th of July greetings through the mail!

As to products used, we’ll start at the back and move our way forward.

The striped and star paper are from Let Freedom Ring by Echo Park.

The tabletop was created with a 3D Embossing Folder by Tim Holtz (Sizzix) called Lumber.

The sentiment is from Old Glory by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

The sentiment is cut with Elegant Ovals by Spellbinders.

The stars are cut with the Patriotic Stars and Stripes (Old Glory) die set by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

The pitcher and decor balls are from All Season Decor by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

The books are from A Man of Knowledge by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

Esther stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink.

Here is the how-to from Esther on making those mini pinwheels:

“I created some mini pinwheels by cutting a 3/4 inch square, snipping from each corner almost to the center, and folding up every other point. I glued a sequin to the center and snipped a toothpick in half for the wand.”

How clever, cute and seasonally appropriate is that!

Thanks so much, Esther, for this very lovely patriotic card.
