This card celebrates the men and women who serve our country. My brother and his newly wed wife are serving in the armed forces. I was thinking of them when deciding what to create.
The card uses a mix of Artistic Outpost images to create a card celebrating our soldiers.
I started from a kraft card base. I added two banners embossed with stars. I distressed and sponged the edges of the banners.
I stamped the solder on white cardstock using black ink. I then cut the image out and sponged with brown dye ink.
I colored the flag portion of the stamp using watercolor markers:
I stamped the Hero sentiment by coloring the stamp using the same watercolor marker and stamping it onto white cardstock.
I decided to add hinges onto the edge of the card:
I took the little screws that came with hinges and cut the ends off using my wire cutters.
I then just glued them into the opening after gluing on the hinge.
I also wanted to create a card in remembrance of 9/11. There were so many heroes during that difficult time and this card remembers them:
