Today we celebrate the birthday of our nation, the United States of America. I couldn’t let the day pass without creating something in red, white and blue. I had a ton of ideas, started a couple but quickly realized I was not organized to be able to pull them off in a timely fashion 🤦🏻♀️
So I set those projects aside for another day and reached for the pack of Basic White Note Cards and Envelopes, a piece of Night of Navy and Real Red Cardstock hoping for inspiration! See, I have been pulling all the retired items while trying to organize my small crafting space and I still have a disaster! I remembered I had just seen the Stitched Stars Dies this morning, YES!!! I had another idea 🥰
We always need thank you cards so pairing the note cards, America’s colors and stars was just the ticket to get my creative juices flowing.
