Happy Memorial Day!
Today I want to Thank all of our Hero’s out there who have served or are serving our country!
I myself have a couple of Hero’s in my book; my son-in-law Zach and my son Neil.
Zach just recently got out of the Marines after 8 years of service in infantry. Zach is married to my daughter Nicole and they have a little 8 month old Sophia.
My son Neil in also in the Marines and he is in intelligence.
We are very proud of our 2 Marines and what they have done and are doing for our country.
For today’s card I used the bundle “Our Hero” which I thought was fitting for today.
I really like the sentiment in this stamp set and had to have it on the front of my card.
Let us pray for our brothers and sisters as they go forth with courage and determination to face the forces of violence, weapons, of destruction and hearts filled with hate.
I embossed the soldier on Green Olive card stock using clear pigment ink and black embossing powder as well as the sentiment.
The tags were embossed on Brush Silver card stock and hand cut out.
The Brush Silver background was embossed with Stars. I created this embossing template using die cut stars and a piece of card stock.
You can watch the video below on this technique:
Once again Thank You to all those who have served or are serving our country; much appreciated!
Blessings to you and your families!
