Today is Memorial Day here in the USA, a day we remember those who serve now and those who have fallen in service to our country. So my card today is in honor of those men and women.
I started by stamping a white panel with our easy grass background
in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink, then I sponged some of the Bamboo ink and
TH Antique Linen ink around the grassy area. I punched some clouds with
my Fiskars cloud punch, attached them to the top of the card with
removal tape, sponged Bashful Blue ink in for the sky and then removed
the punched clouds. The fence was created with a Memory Box die and
glued onto the panel. The red, white and blue buntings were purchased at
Hobby Lobby. As soon as I saw them at the store, I knew I wanted to use
them with this fence die. The sentiment was
stamped with Memento Black ink on white CS and cut apart. The USA was
colored with Copics, fussy cut and attached to the white panel with pop
dots. The remainder of the sentiment was cut into a banner, sponged with
Real Red ink, then layered on a blue banner. The white panel is
attached to a blue layer and then the red card base.
Thanks for stopping by today.
