Honor those who served!

This week’s challenge over at:  Crazy4Challenges,  the challenge is to put a woman on your card in honor of International Women’s Day!  I chose to use a digital stamp from From: FaeryInk   My granddaughter, Kristie, didn’t serve in the  U. S. Army, but did serve as a Sailor in the U. S. Navy!  She served two tours.  This challenge gave me an opportunity to honor her.  She is quite the young lady.  She came back safe and now has adopted a little girl.  I couldn’t be prouder!

The Steps:

Step 1:  Download, size and print out the digital stamp onto white cardstock.  Then color the image.  I used Copic Markers.

Step 2:  Using: 1537 -Stitched Hexagons by Elizabeth Craft Designs, cut out the now colored image.  Then using one size larger die from the same set,  Cut a larger hexagon from red glitter cardstock and adhere the image hexagon to it, centered.

Step 3:   Make a base card by scoring an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″.  Fold over for a tent fold and trim to 5.5″ x 5.5″.  Cut a mat from navy Star cardstock that measures the same size as the base card.  Adhere this to the front of the base card.

Step 4:  Adhere the image stack to the front of the base card centered.

Step 5:  Using Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1288 – Thanks cut from white cardstock.  Now adhere the “Thanks” sentiment as shown.  Here’s another look:
