ODBDSLC258 Thank You for Your Service

Hello Friends!   

I love how versatile this sketch is and I decided to create a card in honor of Veteran’s Day. 

I am so thankful for the men and women who have served our country in the armed forces- we are truly the “Home of the Free Because of the Brave” and the Not Forgotten set along with the Home of the Free set are perfect for honoring those who have served.  May we never forget their service and sacrifice to our country!!

To create this card, ink the Not Forgotten image using a waterproof black ink, stamp onto a piece of White cardstock and watercolor with Navy and Burgundy markers. 

ODBD Stamps- Not Forgotten, Home of the Free, Patriotic Pennants
ODBD Dies- Pennants, Pennant Row, Ovals, Stitched Ovals,
Paper: Patriotic Collection 6x6
Cut the image out with the Stitched Ovals Die and mat onto the Ovals Die.

Ink the Patriotic Pennants swag image using the Navy and Burgundy markers, stamp onto a  piece of White cardstock and cut the image out with the coordinating Pennant Row Die.

Ink the star pennant from Patriotic Pennants, stamp onto a piece of White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die from Pennant Dies.

Ink the sentiment from Home of the Free and Patriotic Pennants using the Navy and Burgundy markers, stamp each onto White cardstock, trim each and mount onto Navy cardstock.

Layer a piece of White cardstock onto a piece of Navy cardstock and stitch the Patriotic Collection 6x6  paper onto the White cardstock layer.
Emboss the entire panel with the star embossing folder and lightly sand the background paper.

“Antique” all of the images using a sponge dauber with an antiquing ink.
Add the burgundy ribbon with the metal ribbon slide to the stamped star banner and assemble the card (per the sketch) using foam dimensionals.

I am so thrilled to be designing alongside the talented ODBD Design Team and hope you will check out all of my DT sisters:

We indeed have a lot to be thankful for and we should be grateful to those who currently serve (as well as their families) as well as to those who have sacrificed their lives for the freedoms of this country. This card is a stunning tribute to our service men/women. The coloring, rich hues and the intricate and gorgeous design are absolutely beautiful!! So many eye-catching details. Thanks so much for inspiring us with your gorgeous creations each week!! Stunning take on the sketch!!
