QKR Stampede Fire Cracker digital stamp 4th of July card

4th of July card featuring QKR Stampede Fire Cracker digital stamp, by Paperesse.

Holidays have a way of sneaking up on me. I thought I had plenty of time to make a few States bound 4th of July cards and then realized I wasn't allowing for mail time – at least two weeks to be on the safe side. I hopped to it and whipped up a few, adding a 'Happy Summer' sentiment to each inside so even if they miss the 4th they're still relevant.

I've been known to skip the 4th of July sentiment from the outside of these type cards altogether and focus on the Happy Summer aspect, like last year's Porky's Backyard BBQ card series. I actually prefer that, but this QKR Stampede Fire Cracker digital stamp was just so perfect for the 4th of July I couldn't see using anything but that for a sentiment. Hold on a sec...yes, I about – 'It's your birthday have a blast' or 'We had a blast...thank you' or 'Hope your birthday goes off with a bang' – yep, those would work, too.

Paper is Tactile Studio Wonderous digital paper pack. Glittery star stickers are simple embellishments.
