Stampin’ for Soldiers Part 2

Today I want to share the second pattern for the Stampin’ for Soldiers project. This card features the Big Shot. The more I use it, the more I love it! It is so easy to create beautiful die cut pieces. Makes for an easy card assembly!


This little baby began with a Baja Breeze card base. The top portion was stamped with A Good Egg in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next a 1.25 inch strip of Baja Breeze was scalloped and attached 1/2 inch from the bottom. Then, a 2.25 inch strip of Close to Cocoa was wrapped in Old Olive ribbon at the top edge and attached. The next layer was a 3/4 inch strip of So Saffron DP, and then a 3/16″ strip of Old Olive that covered the seam. The sentiment from Fresh Cuts was stamped in Chocolate Chip. Finally, the flower and leaves were added. The flower center was made using a piece of chipboard covered with Baja Breeze. The holes were threaded with the new So Saffron Ribbon Originals.

What Mother wouldn’t  just adore this card from her special soldier? I’m having fun creating spring cards in the thick of winter. Makes a gal long for warmer weather.

Have a great weekend!
