Each week Our Daily Bread Designs offers the "Shining the Light" Challenge for card makers. You can find details about the challenge here:
The challenge this week is to use this sketch:
I did alter the sketch to accommodate the soldier stamp I wanted to use (and I do not have the lovely "Joy in a Jar" apothecary stamp or die set yet....it is on my wish list though.) I wanted to make
a card to send to Operation Write Home because they collect cards and
letters of encouragement for our deployed heros. I will write a little note in it for
a soldier to thank them for their service to our country.
The patterned paper is from Our Daily Bread Designs "Patriotic Collection" and the soldier and sentiment are from Our Daily Bread Designs "Not Forgotten" stamp set.
You can find these items here:
I stamped the image and sentiment using Momento Ink in Black and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I added red and navy ink to the flag image after embossing using a pointed Q-Tip to get around those tight corners of the stars.
The silver star is from Oriental Trading Company and was part of a patriotic
embellishment collection you can find here:
Thank you for stopping by!
