American Flag Hand-Stitched Card Pattern

Here’s my salute to the American Flag with a hand-stitched card. Crafting is one of our favorite ways to celebrate any holiday!  This is a great card for celebrating our Nation’s Independence Day this fourth of July. Or it could also be given to an American Soldier’s family, paying tribute to those fighting for our freedoms.
