7 Handmade Card Idea Inspirations for 4th of July

Get ready to dive into your red, white, and blue paper stash with these beautiful handmade, stamped card ideas for 4th of July…

But first!

… indulge me in a little Forth to July humor (in honor of my father-in-law, who is 99 years old, fought in WWII, and is a lover of all the bad jokes ever written…)

What was the most popular dance in 1776? Indepen-dance. 

What did one flag say to the other flag? Nothing. It just waved.

And lastly… Did you hear the one about the Liberty Bell? (Yeah, it cracked me up, too!) 

Okay… now that I got that out of my system 😀 Let’s start making cards!

(Oh yeah! And don’t forget to download your FREE digi-stamps below…)

Here are 7 beautiful inspirations for your 4th of July celebration, PLUS a FREE sentiment download so you can start craft right away! 


Seven Card Idea Inspirations for Independence Day


Card 1 – Red, White & Shaker Card

This Shaker-style card from Queen & Co. is sooo pretty! (Plus, I’ve got some washi-tape that will be perfect for replicating that background!)

Card 2 – Americana

I’m a sucker for anything with a sepia-toned, Americana feel 🙂 Plus: The star-flag combo, buttons, and twine makes this card look extra-special.
