Vintage look combo 4th of July and Bastille Day card
This is the second of three 4th of July cards I whipped up in a hurry to send back to the States. You can see the first of the three here. This one is actually a combo card for the 4th of July and Bastille Day (the French national holiday on 14th July), which means it might be just half late—it might not make it for the 4th, but it should make it for the 14th.
I sent it to my cousin in Seattle who's a big Francophile (Seattle has some nice Bastille Day celebrations, too!). If you look closely you see it's Uncle Sam and the French symbol Marianne against a French flag—perfect! This is a freebie from Vintage Holiday Crafts. The paper is also free and is from Cottage Market's Patriotic digital paper pack.
