StampersBest Bald Eagle ~ Volunteer Appreciation Cards

I volunteered to make cards to give out to volunteers in our battalion that are being recognized at an upcoming luncheon.   I made 40 of these yesterday. I have made cards similar to this in the past and liked them so much that I knew right away what cards I wanted to make. I had to run some errands in the afternoon and my husband offered to do the brads.. I had done four cards and he did all the rest. When I got home I put them all together.   This StampersBest Bald Eagle Portrait stamp is probably my most favorite of all of their stamps that I have...  so majestic.   If you should order this stamp, be sure and use code:   airbornewife   at checkout to save 10% on your order.   This is also an OWH fundraiser stamp.  StampersBest makes a donation to OWH for each of these stamps sold.   You get a great stamp while helping support a great cause.

This was before I got started on the cards after stamping, cutting, punching out everything I needed.. note my most favorite thing in the center there to the right of the hole punch.. dimensionals!!!  I got an order yesterday and there were 10 glorious packs of these babies.. ahhhhhhhh.  My family doesn't seem to mind when there are little dimensional papers around the house.. they cling to my clothes and I carry them out of my stamp room and who knows where they land.. I see them all over when vacuuming.

this was the 20 when they were done.   This morning I printed out stuff to put on the inside of the cards.  I hope that they like them. I will miss the luncheon since my husband and I will be in KS for an Army school.

card stock:  Neenah Eclipse Black #100, Yellow from the Paper Factory, White Embossed layers
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
accessories:  oval punch, label punch, hole punch ~ later used paper piercer using one of the cards that I had punched the holes in as a template, gold brads and Dimensionals!!!!

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
