Any Hero’s Red, White, & Blue Thank You


Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop. Today I made an “Any Hero” card; i.e. a card from my family to any service person to show our appreciation.  For more information on OWH see this link.
I used OWH card sketch #73 and Club Scrap Cape Cod Collection to make an interactive card.   The “Thank You” tag pulls out of the pocket and my family has signed it.  On the inside of the card we each hand wrote notes.  We make this into a family activity, completing several cards in an evening.   
 

 
Supplies:
Club Scrap Cape Cod Collection for paper, stamps and cut outs  
Club Scrap Blue Satin and WOW White embossing power 
Sizzix Embossing Folder 
Distress Paint - Picket Fence for edges
EK Success Modern Cube edge punch and Two Point Flag Punch

Thank you for joining along in the Blog Hop and for reading my post.  For more OWH sketch cards and a card making formula see my May 4, 2013 postHere is a link back to the start at OWH Stars and Stamps Blog.
