Today is Veterans Day in the U.S. People sometimes confuse the meaning of this day with Memorial Day, so here is an explanation of the difference between the two:
---Memorial Day is to honor all who have died during a war in which the United States was involved.
---Veterans Day is to honor all who have served, or are serving, in the US military.
A huge thank you to all those who have served, both past and present, and to their families who also sacrifice so much!
So, I am taking the newest online card class, Holiday Card Workshop.
Today is the first day of class and we are to focus on the insides of our cards.
I received some new goodies from Simon Says Stamp the other day and decided to use them for my homework. I LOVE their Peppermint Stripe Stencil!!
I used Barn Door Distress Ink with the stencil, then stamped the rows of snowflakes using Hero Arts, Soft Pool Shadow Ink and one of the stamps from the Holiday Borders set. The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas die, which I cut twice, and layered, to match my colors.
And here is a look at the inside.
The pocket was made with vellum and I just added the border along three sides using the same ink and the Peppermint Stripe Stencil again.
I've got this week off from work, so I am one, happy stamper! :)
Thanks for stopping by today! ♥
