I just have a really quick post for today, the card I am sharing with you is one that I made for our neighbor's son. He is in the service and a couple of months ago they had a going away party for him, he will be gone for at least a year and maybe up to a year and a half. He is so young (just in his early 20's) and so brave!The cardstock I used for the base and the mat are both from WorldWin and the designer paper is from the My Minds Eye, Bohemia Collection. I found the poem online, the author is unknown and I changed it up a little and then printed it onto white cardstock. If you click on the picture it will enlarge so you can read the poem. I used the Wizard and the Curved Rectangles S5-006 die templates from Spellbinders for die cutting around the poem. I left the cardstock in the die template and inked the inside edges with Not Quite Navy ink from SU. I also used the largest size of the Curved Rectangles along with designer paper from My Minds Eye to make another diecut and a mat behind the poem. For the title I made a diecut using one of the die templates from Ribbon Tags Trio S3-150 and I left the cardstock in the die template to be able to stencil the inside edges of the tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger. I also added some ribbon and brads. The card is pretty simple but I think the poem says it all!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and please remember to keep all of the men and women in the service, at home and away in your thoughts and prayers. They are all so brave and I know I am thankful everyday for all they do!!!
