Hello my stamping friends!! I am back from vacation and I am trying to get back into the swing of things. :D
So, to start this new day out right, I have a card I would like to share with you all that I've made with one of the newly released stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs last week called "Not Forgotten". I know the image of the soldier is supposed to be a male, but I thought that I could easily make this into a little more feminine looking card as well. See, my husband was active duty Air Force for 26 years and I have seen more than one soldier (male and female) leaving for deployment or TDY or training and from the back some females even look like men, no offense. The uniform/BDU's do not distinguish between male and female, it's one for all. To make a long story short, I have made a pretty girlie card to honor a lady that recently joined our church, she is in the Air Force as well.
Have a look and if you have some time I'd like to know what you think about my card honoring one of the brave women defending our freedom. She is not deployed right now, but she had been last year.
Fight the good fight...
Paper: PTI Rustic Cream, Dark Chocolate, Recollections Kraft, Basic Grey Nook&Pantry
Stamps: ODBD Not Forgotten
Ink: SU Close to Cocoa (Image) , Memento Rich Cocoa (scripture)
Accessories: Offray cream cotton lace, May Arts ribbon, handmade flower, Recollections half pearls, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large, Labels 20, Standard Circles Large, Parisian Accents,
All right, so, what do you think? I think it works pretty well for a female.
I am sure that I will be using this set over and over again, and it does not have to be for a holiday, I can now make a card that honors one of these brave military members, active duty, retired it is just a perfect addition, wouldn't you agree?
Well, this is it for me for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and making my day a happy day!
Have a blessed and super creative day!
