I started on these earlier today.. I made one card, liked it, so I cut enough to make 12 more. I stamped the stars in yellow after the first card.. I noticed the ink pad laying on my desk and thought I'd try it and I liked the way it looked.
These are not really hard to make.. after cutting everything, stamping everything.. I just made an assembly line and they were done before I knew it.
I wanted to share a tip on some scraps. The Star panel measures 1" x 5" and I was cutting these from a 12 x 12 piece so at after cutting the 5" pieces, I was left with a 2" piece on each strip... I still used them.. just put them on the ends of the red layer and when you put the navy blue die-cut on top that has the sentiment.. you can't even tell that it doesn't go all the way across. I do this a lot when I have smaller pieces.. if something is being layered on top of it.. I'll cut something in half to "stretch the paper" to fill the space.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
