Hi everyone, Laurel here. In Canada we have had Thanksgiving so I have begun my Christmas/holiday prep. However, in honor of Remembrance or Veterans Day I have a card to share today.
I love my KOTM and SMAK kits thus, when I want to create any project, I dig though them first. How many of these kits do you have? When I say dig I mean dig… and I have said it before – if you don’t subscribe to the kits – you need to! They always come in handy!
The poppies in the Never Be Afraid KOTM were perfect so I based my card around them. Although it is hard to tell, this pattern paper is a world map so I knew that I had to use it. I then stamped the brick background from the Unleash Your Happy SMAK kit.
Having spent time in the small towns of Normandy France, one thing that stands out to me is the visible damage to the still standing buildings. Hence I wanted to include bricks of some sort on my card.
I then stamped the poppies onto the background paper and again on red cardstock. I cut out just the poppies from the cardstock and adhered to the card. A couple of them are mounted on foam squares to add some dimension and interest.
The sentiment is from the Quiet Essence stamp set. I stamped it, cut it apart then stitched it on – once again, to add more interest to the card.
As a final touch I just added some washi tape and staples.
Now let’s all remember those soldiers that fought for us and continue to fight…and of course may there one day be peace in the world!
