Military Father's Day Card


I haven't made a military-themed card since OWH closed, but I enjoyed making this one today. The patterned paper is by BoBunny and I used it for the image panel, the smaller star, as well as the horizontal panel beneath the blue. The navy and dsp star were both die-cut with a Sizzix Stars#2 bigz die. I matted with red and kraft, then embossed the white background with a Darice tiny stars ef. The white MFP father's day sentiment panel was die-cut with a SNSS ticket die, and the kraft mat was hand-cut from kraft, using deckled scissors on the ends to match the ticket edges. I added assorted sizes of red, white, and blue brads for the finishing touch.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day!

I am a very much a fan of patriotic cards, and this is no exception. I do like how you carried the star theme through the card and how clean it is! TFS!

As I said yesterday, you do so well with patriotic cards, and this one is exceptional. You even got me pondering a few ideas last night.

This is a super smart masculine card Carol. I like the military theme and colours, and the embossed stars background looks great.
