I sent something off to my brother at school a few days ago, and I made him a little mini patriotic note to go with it! :) I used the PTI Americana stamp set: est. 1776. I also got to try out my new Jenni Bowlin inks. I really love them! I used Fountain Pen and Chili Powder. They are a wonderful dye ink. The ink gives such good coverage, it almost looks like a pigment ink.
I added another phrase to the inside flap. I kinda liked that the phrase is the next lyric in the song, so you almost sing it to yourself as you're opening the card, "God Bless America, Land that I Love..." Makes me kind of teary-eyed whenever I hear that song. The 4th is definitely one of my favorite holidays!
I continued the stripe pattern on the back of the card.
The light tone on tone ink color is Antique Linen by Tim Holtz. And the die is my favorite Papertrey Ink die, the Lunchbox Note die. I use it all the time, because I love making mini notes!
And a peek at the inside...
Hope you had fun celebrating last weekend. I spent some time with my relatives in south Florida at the beach. We had a great time! And by the way, HERE are some tips about taking pictures of fireworks! So sorry, I meant to share this with you on the 4th, but I was still in south Florida and wasn't able to get a post up in time. Hopefully you can bookmark it for future use.
Don't forget there's still a few days left to enter my giveaway HERE! Have a sunny day!
