Memorial Day Cards

My daughter works for a hospice company in south Texas. She wants me to come down and do a card making class for people to make cards for Memorial Day. These are the cards I have made.

On this first card I embossed a blue rectangle with the Cuttlebug EF called Stars and the stripes with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes. Then I took a redink pad and rubbed over the stripes. Inside says Freedom is never free. Thank you.


On this card I cut three strips of card stock, one red, one white and one blue and embossed with the Cuttlebug Stars EF and attached them to a tan card base. The stamps I used are from Cloud Nine Designs Stamp America. Inside says Thank you so much for your service and bravery.
 For this car I used Stamping Up Two Step Border Builders. The sentiment is from Close to My Heart. Inside says Thank you for all the things you do.

This card uses a flag stamp from Stampendous. I printed the sentiment on the computer and used Spellbinders Fancy Tags die to frame it. Inside says Thank you.

Paper Doll

My friend Regina Hardy is a Close To My Heart Consultant. She had a cute card on her blog . It was made from the Close To My Heart Paper Doll Everyday Life acrylic stamp set. I thought my granddaughter would like to make the paper doll and I think it also makes a cute birthday card.
