Giving Thanks Patriotic Card

Hello Stamping Friends

I find it appropriate to first Thank all The Military People out there. I can't say enough, How much I appreciate you for your service and for the freedom we sometimes take for granted! THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS!

Since we are coming up on Memorial Day and the 4th of July will be here before we know it. Here is a Quick & Easy Patriotic Card for you to re-create! Let's all Thank our Military!

I just want to share a little story, My Dad, who I lost 2 1/2 years ago, was a WWII Prisoner of War. In the last few years of his life, he would take each one of us,( my three sisters) and our families out for dinner each week. He always had some kind of Veteran cap on. I swear every time we went out, a person would come up to him and Thank him for his service. Sometimes even paying the check. It was amazing to me! It actually still chokes me up thinking about it. I want to be that person who Thanks a Veteran! I owe it to my Dad! I was going to share this story on Memorial Day, but when I created this card, I was inspired to share it now. I hope you all go out a make a Card to give someone a Big Thank You! My Followers are absolutely the Best!

This is a Basic 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Card Base,
I embossed the front using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
Layered  Three Strips, two Real Red and one Pacific Point along the bottom.
Cut different size Stars using the Stampin'Up Stars Framelits. Some I used Dimensionals and some attached with fast fuse.
Cut a 1" piece and stamped Thank You, Used Banner Punch to Banner end.
Punched Small Stars and added to front.

  2. I can't say enough about America and my freedom, either, Angie. I forgot that we were going to talk about the commonality of our fathers. We'll still have to do that. This card is lovely and honors our heroes well. I am so thankful for those who are serving our country and for those who have served!!

  3. This is a very beautiful card. Plan to make it for Veteran Day and give it to all the military and veterans I work with
