Our Battalion will be home soon from a long deployment and I am making cards to go into baskets that go into the Barracks rooms for the single soldiers that live there. I am making 161 of these.
I had originally was going to just do a card front with a printed off thank you on the back.. but then decided to put them on white card bases with a black liner and the thank you attached to it. This picture above shows 150 card fronts.. the number increased the day after cutting all these and I went back and cut 11 more.
Our Task Force is known as Task Force S.A.W. ~ Sapper Athlete Warrior and the helmet is a symbol used for the Task Force. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut all of the helmets out. Shown is how I did the stacks of 10 of each of the black layers and then I stacked 10 of each of the red helmets on top of them.. I went back and cut 11 more helmets after this.
Getting them put together.. my Scotch ATG dispenser makes it so much easier.. and will make them stay together for a long time. Note: in this picture is the revised sentiment I printed off to put inside the cards.. had added Task Force S.A.W. OEF XIII to the sentiment that is in the picture below.
This picture shows what I had typed up and printed out to put on the inside of the cards.. however after typing up and printing out one sheet.. I added Task Force S.A.W. OEF XIII see note with image above this one and you can see the pieces in the upper left corner of picture.
My AWESOME Fiskars Procision Paper Trimmer that I LOVE!!! I have cut thousands of pieces of paper in it and they are just as nice as the first one.
This is my Silhouette Cameo.. the mat to the left has cut so many things.. yet it still works great. I can honestly say that these mats are way better than any of the ones I used in my Cricut Expression. I am so glad that I took the leap and bought this machine.. it is worth every penny.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
