Happy Veteran's Day! In honor of this special occasion and my Thursday post at Really Reasonable Ribbon, I decided to make a Thank You card for all the amazing men and women who have and who are currently serving our country.
For this patriotic card, I cut my 5" x 4" base from Royal Blue Bazzill cardstock and then rounded the bottom corners. I then cut 4 5/8" by 3 5/8" piece of white cardstock and embossed it with Cuttlebug's Seeing Spots folder. And then the fun part! I created a flag out of ribbons and trim.
The stripes were created with six 4 1/2" strips of Red Stripe Grossgrain and attached to the base with Scor-Tape. I usually have to add a TON of adhesive to attach ribbon to an embossed surface, but not with the Scor-Tape. LOVE that! The field of blue was created with royal blue shimmery satin from the November Ribbon Club Assortment. Finally, I added three stars cut from the Silver Star Trim also in the November Ribbon Club Assortment. All of these supplies can be found right HERE in the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.
Thanks so much for visiting today! Hope to see you Saturday for the Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop!
