Card A Day Blog Post: Thank You For Protecting Our Freedom

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. It's that time again for another Card A Day Blog entry. This week's theme is " Thank You". I chose to use a card that I made to send to Operation Write Home, for one of our brave heroes.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. I then added a background pattern paper from Hot Off The Press, Navy with Stars, cut to 5.25" x 4". I then made a panel using a white piece of card stock, cut to 4.25" x 3.25", matted it with a piece of red card stock cut half an inch larger going each way, stamped my sentiment on it, then adhered it to my star patterned paper.

For the striped paper panel, I used a piece of red, white, and blue striped paper, from Recollections, cut to 3.5" x 1.75", matted that piece with a piece of navy blue card stock, draped a piece of red, white and blue ribbon that I had in my stash, over the top right side, cutting it just a bit bellow the edge of my top panel, and cut a "V" at the end.

I hope the hero that receives this card, enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.

I would love to hear what you think of my latest creation, so if you have the time, please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think.
