Memorial Day will be here in two short weeks. My grandson (in law) is deployed to Iraq and I wanted him to know I was thinking about him so I developed this card after seeing Lynn’s (Stamping with Lynn) pretty card. I did change it up a bit but used the same basic design.
The colors are Real Red, Pacific Point and Whisper White. I had a small piece of red glitter paper left from Valentine’s a couple years ago for the large star frame. But I think the Stampin’ Up! Shiny Red Paper would do just as well.
*Whisper White is card base, layered on the front with a piece of Pacific Point.
*1 1/2″ piece of Pacific Blue punched on both sides with the border Star Punch. Adhere with All Purpose Glue.
*Stamp the soldier figure from “For Your Country” Stamp Set in Pacific Point on Whisper White Card Stock.
*Die Cut the soldier figure using the best frame that fits and center him.
*Die Cut the star frame placing the same size star die that was used to cut him out and the next size up to create a frame. Adhere carefully to the Whisper White Star with Stampin’ Up! Fine Tip Glue Pen and adhere to card base fitting to front of card.
*Die Cut another star from the red in the smallest size and adhere to the upper right corner.
*Using Pacific Point Ink and sentiment from Happy Home Stamp Set stamp sentiment on Whisper White Card Stock.
*Quickly dust with Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing powder and carefully heat emboss.
* Using appropriate size die from the Tags and Labels Framelit set die cut sentiment.
*Die cut the next up size of die from Tags and Framelits for background and adhere to sentiment and adhere to right lower side of card.
*Layer a piece of Real Red Card Stock to inside of Card.
*Using Stampin’ Up! Confetti Stars Border Punch on side of next layer of Whisper White Card Stock.
*Using Real Red Ink and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch Stamp Set, stamp in the middle of the upper card.
*Quickly cover all with Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing powder and heat emboss.
*Using the middle of the front star frame left over cut another frame by placing a smaller star die inside and die cutting. Adhere to left side of card.
*Adhere Whisper White Card to Real Red layer.
The envelope is lined with the Pacific Point paper from the Brights Collection Stack DSP and die cut using the envelope liner die.
Watch for my next post. I cute children’s quick and easy card!
