Today I decided to make a card to thank our service men and woman who protect and serve our country. So come on in and join me as I pay my respect and gratitude to these amazing individuals.
The first thing I did was cut down some 110 lb. red cardstock to create a standard A2 size card. I then cut down two mats in both white and navy cardstock. I then went ahead and used my art glitter glue and glued one of the white mats onto one of the navy mats.
Next I used the large star from Maymay’s All is Bright stamp set and used some fired brick distress oxide ink to stamp onto the center of the cardstock. I then chose the sentiment for your service from Maymay’s just to say thanks stamp set. I stamped it across the large star using faded jeans distress oxide ink. I then stamped out some of the other stars in both corners using the same oxide inks.
For the front of the card I used some washi tape to mask off several areas of the white mat and applied the fired brick distress oxide ink with a sponge dauber to resemble stripes on the flag.
I then took the thank you sentiment from the just say thanks stamp set and stamped it with Versamark ink onto the navy pierced oval die cut. Then I heat embossed it with some white embossing powder. I then took a 2 x 2 piece of navy cardstock and stamped some stars with versamark and heat embossed it with some white embossing powder.
The final steps to the card is put it all together. I adhered the striped mat to the navy mat and used some art glitter glue to adhere them to the red card base. Then I used foam squares to pop up the thank you oval die cut in the bottom right hand corner. Then I glued down the star square in the top left corner. Lastly I added a little sparkle on the thank you with a clear spectrum noir sparkle pen.
This completes our card for today and hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and if you get a chance thank one of our service men or women. See ya’all next time.
