Just like the Fourth of July, Memorial Day brings to mind Red, White & Blue as well as stars (and stripes). I originally posted this card last July. I wanted to share it with you again today because most of the items used on this card are retiring. 🙁
The fun backgrounds are from the Sweet Li’l One stamp set, the stars are from the Be the Star stamp set and the sentiment is from the And Many More stamp set. I’m sad to see them all go but I’m really bummed to see the And Many More stamp set go because it was my go-to stamp set for sentiments along with A Dozen Thoughts stamp set which is also retiring. I don’t know what I’m going to do…..
If you like this card and want to recreate it, tomorrow is the last day to order these stamp sets. After that they’re gone for good. Don’t miss out!
This card design has seen a lot of mileage. The Military Ministry group at church sends out birthday cards to current and former military personnel from our church and this was the design my card group used. We did leave off the doily and the label punch to make it a bit simpler. They ask for the same design whenever they run out. I guess they liked it. 🙂
I hope you have a safe and blessed holiday today. Thank you to any and all of you who are in or who have served in our country’s military. And most of all, let’s remember all those who gave their lives for our freedom.
Take care and Happy Stamping!
