I wanted to share this special card that I made this week for a friend. First of all, my husband is on the Honor Guard and does many military events, mostly funerals. Recently, he got to be part of a ceremony for The Moving Wall, a vetenam memorial replica. The Honor Guard works closely with the employees at several cemetaries in our area. They have found the people at our veteran's cemetary to be very patriotic and respectful of the process of laying our veteran's to rest. So, our friend, who plays the bugle for the Honor Guard, had me make a card to thank them for all that they do and the respect that they show, even when doing the most mundane tasks.
That's my hubby, looking at the camera, all dressed up!
Here is the card. I am very happy with how it turned out. I used my Silhouette electronic cutter for the pieces on this card. I even cut a camo background piece and used it to sponge on the background. I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp for the dog tags.
I also used the Envelope Punch Board to create a custom envelope for this large card (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" closed).
I added the stars to the card using the new Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks.
I had a lot of fun making this card, and now I feel like making more patriotic cards! If you need such a card let me know, I do take custom orders!
