2013 Artisan Design Team Finalist · Cards · Punches · Stampin' Up

Cards for the Troops!

In celebration of the 4th of July, the Military Employee Resource Group at work sponsored an event where we made 85 thank you cards to send to active duty service men and women.  I designed a patriotic card that would be easy enough for non-stampers to make.  I found this stamp from a few years ago that was perfect for this project!  Everyone had so much fun stamping….some stampers went through the line a couple of times 🙂

Thank you AAA for sponsoring this!

Super simple card with easy stamping.  We used the banner punch to punch the underlying red banner and the medium star punch to punch the larger star.  We used the small retired star punch to make the little stars.  We stamped the small stars in Real Red randomly on the Whisper White base.  Dapper Denim is the perfect blue for this project!  Love, love, love!!!  The card pops together quickly once the parts are made.  We did them assembly line style with lots of direction at each station along the way 🙂

This was a great event!  Everyone signed the inside of the card they made thanking the service person for their service….

A perfect celebration of our country’s birthday 🙂
