Happy Memorial Day…. With Love

I found a little bit of time to craft on Saturday and was inspired by all the wonderful patriotic cards that I saw on the Operation Write Home (OWH) blog hop.   I decided to make a card to put in my box to send to OWH.

This cute teddy bear is from the “Sending you Luv” digi stamp set from Whimsy & Stars Studio.    I decided to keep my card relatively flat and easy to mail so that it would be easier for the OWH recipient to mail it. 

 

 

2012-05-28 WSS with love WM

 

I printed this teddy 3 times.  I colored the first one all except for the heart.   On the 2nd one, I cut out the heart (outside the edges of the heart), covered it with washi tape and then trimmed it right outside the lines. I also used my thickest embossing stylist on the back side to give it some dimension.  On the final copy, I colored his paws, cut them out and layered them on the heart.

 

 

Thank you to every one to every one who has served our country.   I am thinking of those we have lost and their families today.

 

Happy Memorial Day!   Thank you for stopping by!

Cheryl this is a wonderful card and such a thoughtful post on this Memorial Day. I really like that you have given the card just a "touch" of dimension with the heart and hands to make it easier for the service member to send. Have a lovely week. <3
