For both of these cards I used the Plantin Schoolbook and the Stand and Salute cartridges (which is great for the 4th of July and Memorial Day holidays).
I found this great paper from Authentique for fourth of July! The colors are awesome. And I have a brother-in-law that is deployed right now, so I made some cards for his wife to send to him. Our prayers are with him and his family right now and I am continually impressed at the sacrifice and courage our troops and their families have.
