Before I show my creations for the day, I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of our military personnel that are risking their lives (and for some, giving their lives) to make the UNITED STATES of AMERICA continue to be the LAND OF THE FREE...
THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL YOU DO FOR OUR COUNTRY!
I'm visiting family this week in PA and we are having a wonderful time! I knew I'd have some "down" time while I'm here, so I did bring a few of my scrappin' favs to make a few creations while I"m here. I had made a card for my niece's wedding, but although I was very happy with it, I realized it seemed more appropriate for someone buying a house...good news...the next person that buys a house is going to get an AWESOME card from me:)
So, back to the drawing board I went, and came up with this instead:
I decided to stick with my Bo-Bunny 6 x 6 paper pack (which, yes, I brought with me) to make this card that I have to say, came out really great. The best part is that my stepmother (who I'm staying with) is also a paper crafter, so I "borrowed" a few of her supplies to complete this card (specifically the red cardstock and the red/white ribbon).
Initially, the red wasn't exactly the shade I was looking for, so I used some Red Barn distress ink (that I DID bring with me) to richen the red paper up to what I was looking for.
I really love the way this turned out and can't wait until I get to give it away to my niece and new nephew-in-law next week. The stamps I used for this card are from Inkadinkado.
Feel free to leave a comment:)
Happy Memorial Day!
