Cards created this year to send to our Nation's Heros....24

Monday, July 16, 2012


A gentleman at the office was retiring and I was asked to make a card for the group to sign and send on. I don't have much in the retirement category so I went off to Michael's to see what i could find. Not much!
There are lots of digis out there, but not one that I thought my still lacking copic skills could tackle.

So, I did what any good crafter does... I raided someone else's stash! I asked my facebook group of fellow crafters for goodies - three days later an envelope came stuffed with stamped sentiments... including a completed card!! Though the card was lovely... I didn't think Jim would appreciate the pink.
I am really liking this 6x6 style, it just presents really well. The craft and black stripe and damask are from the same sheet of Graphic 45 paper, layered on Stampin Up's cherry cobbler. All of the ivory was inked up with Tim Holtz's tea dye to coordinate with the G45 paper.
That image, stamped in the same cherry cobbler, and embossed is from Inkadinkadoo.
Some great brads to finish it off.
