Remembering Patriots

Hello there!  I hope you all had a wonderful 4 day weekend celebrating Mememorial Day for those of you in the United States.  I know I loved the warmth and the sunshine.  I chased my little dog around the neighborhood a few times as he has decided to dig under the fence.  That booger!!! 
Sorry that I digressed.  I am truly thankful for our armed forces and service members in this countries and will never be able to repay them for the liberties they fought so hard for.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Today's card I used a new product for me, Vintage Hues Acetate images from Stamp On It.  With this image I used glossy accent and added fine irriedescent glitter to the back or dull side of the image so that when it dries it accents the image.  To adhere the image I then applied art glitter glue on the glittered areas and carefully adhered it to white card stock so that the image would pop.  From there I built my card as normal.

One more thing to make my card make easier I used the Craft-dee Bowz tool to make my bow as it makes the perfect bow every time.  This card looks professionally done, but only took minutes with the help of these two products.  I hope you try them out.   Also... It's not too late to join the May Challenge over at Craft-dee Bowz Challenge Blog!

  1. Beautiful vintage card for Memorial Day. Sorry that you got all your "steps" in for the day being stressed looking for your pup. At least he didn't get hit by a car and is home safe! And you deserve an ice cream cone for your hard work, hehe.

  2. Love the vintage image! The bow is gorgeous. Glad you caught your naughty pup!
