Cards to Soldiers

I have been busy the past few days making cards to send to my son, Jacob in Iraq for him to give out to the guys in his platoon to send home. Here are samples of what I am making. I have 3 more designs in mind. I am waiting on an order that comes in on Thurs. to make one of the designs. Had to have that Dasher stamp to make some. Plus, I am out of envelopes and clear envelopes to put each into to protect it and keep the card and envelope together and those are also in the coming order. I will be very busy Thursday night as I plan to mail them all on Friday.

This card I made in several colors. This one is Brilliant Blue, also made it in Real Red, Elegant Eggplant and Glorious Green. I also went one step further and sprayed each card with a mixture of alcohol and the new Shimmer Paint (love this stuff) to add a little shimmer to the card. You can kinda' see the embossing on the white done with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder.

I love this set "Big on Christmas". Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! does not have a snowflake embossing folder, so I had to use one from another company. Hopefully they will get one. The center was kept "unembossed" using a new technique. It you are interested in learning how to do this, please contact me, I would love to show you how easy it is to do.

Here are all 3 designs I have made so far...3 more to go..guess what I will be doing tonight - LOL!
