The card base measures 5.5” by 4.25” and is a retired color Cherry Cobbler. The mat is a piece of 5.25” by 4” Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment, stars and eagle are from The Free & the Brave stamp set. The stars are stamped in Real Red, the sentiment in Night of Navy and the eagle in Basic Black. Color the eagle using watercolor pencils. Add Wink of Stella to the white parts. The sentiment and background are cut from the Tags & Labels dies. A strip of 1” Cherry Cobbler was added to the front. The banner embellishment is from the Bitty Banners dies. Attach the embellishments using foam adhesives. The card base for the pinwheel card is Basic Black. The sentiment and pinwheels are from the retired Paper Pumpkin kit. To make the smaller pinwheel, trim an inch off of each side of the standard pinwheel. To make the pinwheel spin, use a pinwheel kit by Martha Stewart or We R Memory Keepers. The brads which come with the kit don’t allow the pinwheels to spin. For an example of how to use a combination of current and retired Stampin’ Up products for a 4th of July project, see my post: Patriotic Pigs
