Thank an officer, Thank a Veteran, Stampin’ Up

Hi Stampin’ Friends, here are two very simple cards I made for some very special people, our veterans and our police officers. With Memorial Day approaching, and this being National Police Week I thought they were both very timely and thoughtful cards.

I used the Stars Textured Impressions Embossing folder to get started on the American Flag card. I will say it took me a few tries to get the flow of the flag correct so it looked deservingly beautiful( one hint, it helps to look at a picture of our flag , as you cut your card). I used the Sponge Daubers to add the Real Red and Night of Navy colors and put it  onto a piece of Black card stock onto dimensionals the give it more depth. The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set, and the stars are from the Star framelit set.

This would also be a great card to share with a Military family member or friend, who may be overseas.

In Tribute to all those who have served

The Thin Blue Line card is another very thoughtful card, especially if you have any loved ones in Law Enforcement. I used Basic Black and Pacific Point card stock along with a star from the framelit set, done with the Silver Glimmer paper. The sentiment was also stamped in Pacific Point with a new stamp set that will be available June 1st.😁

Both cards have a piece of Whisper White inside to write on as well. These are both standard card sizes 5 1/2″ by 4 1/4″.
