Happy Veteran's Day!

Let me start off by thanking our military men and women, past and present, for the sacrifices they make along with their families.  I have friends who's husbands serve and I see how hard it is on their wives and children and how strong all of them are while at home...frankly, I'm amazed at them all and I SO appreciate them for doing it. Thank you!!


Some of the Imaginisce Design Team have created Veteran's Day cards and we're sharing them today...check them all out HERE.  

Here's my card.  I think it's good for other occasions too...especially since I don't have anyone to give it to in my immediate family that is currently serving in the military.  :)

I made the card using my Silhouette, and all the patterned papers are by Imaginisce.  The base of the card was made with the shape "miss you like crazy card," and the stars with the "patriotic star three" shape.  The stars cut out in three parts and I made them 3-D by using Imaginisce's colored foam adhesive in the center of the first and second layer of the stars. 

Also I used part of an Imaginisce stamp to stamp onto the center white stars with gray ink...and then I used a ZIG pen to add some faux stitching to the edges of the stars as well.

Since the text cuts out attached to the card, I thought it might be a little fragile to stay like that so I backed it with some patterned paper leaving a little bit of a margin around it.
