Love My Soldier

Happy Valentines Day to all our troops!  Yesterday I sent a care package to both our boys with some homemade goodies.  This is the card I put in for our oldest son who is in the infantry.    Love my guys!!
I started by printing a photo from the internet and built the card from there.  I really like this layout and can see using it again with a stamped image in place of the photo.   I decided the Geometrical stamp set, the Stripes embossing folder and the distressed diagonal lines of the Ectetera DSP would be a nice combo for this card.

By having just a bit of the diagonal DSP sticking out it repeats the chevron pattern of the stamp.  Also it is a bit hard to tell from the photo but the chevrons are stamped with Old Olive and the arrow with Jet Black Stazon.  It needed a bit of black to tie all together.

  1. Love this card. My daughters boyfriend is Military and I am always trying to incorporate military into his cards. Now I have a simple yet perfect card for him. Definitely on my case list. TFS.
