My Thoughts are happiest when YOU'RE in them. cards

I finally put some ink on this gorgeous Stampin' UP! stamp set called Field Flowers.

I bought it a while back.. yet never even opened the case.. until a few days ago.

I made a bunch of these.. these below are three different ones I made.. the one on the right was the first one I made.. the one in the middle I made because I only had a little bit of Midnight Muse card stock left.. and the ones on the left I made a bunch of.

The measurements for the ones on the left and right are the same.. they are:

Not Quite Navy card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
white layer:  5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Old Olive layer: 5 1/4" x 4"

Not Quite Navy layer: 3" x 4 5/8"
white layer: 2 7/8" x 4 1/2"

*NOTE: when I did the very first card, I had stamped/embossed, then attached to the Not Quite Navy panel.. then on the bunches I made.. it was an afterthought.. I had stamped/adhered to the Not Quite Navy.. then embossed it.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and then punched it out using a Stampin' UP! punch.

the card in the middle:

white layer: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"

Not Quite Navy layer:  2 5/8" x 5 1/4"
Old Olive:  2 1/2" x 5 1/8"

flower layer: 
Old Olive:  4 1/2" x 3"
Not Quite Navy: 4 3/8" x 2 7/8"
White Layer:  4 1/4" x 2 3/4"


Stems: Old Olive
Flowers: Bordering Blue and Midnight Muse

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!

God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
