Here’s a Thank You card to our military who keep our country safe! Remembering all those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom and those who serve to maintain that freedom on this Memorial Day weekend!
It’s Judy here today. I’ve created a patriotic “Thank you” card in honor of Memorial Day. I love the classic red, white and blue! There’s a bit of sparkle, too, on the stars!
Making the Patriotic Thank You Card
Form a 4¼ x 5½ʺ white card.
Cut 4⅛ x 5⅜ʺ piece of white card stock. Emboss with embossing folder
Cut 4½ʺ pieces of blue and red ribbon and burlap
Apply Premium Double-Sided ¼ʺ Tape to long edges of burlap and to back of red and blue ribbons.
Add stars to the ribbon (you could use 3D Foam Stars).
Sprinkle with glitter, press onto stars and remove excess.
Fasten burlap to embossed card stock. Fasten stars ribbon to red ribbon and fasten both to burlap ribbon. Trim ends even with card stock edge.
Tie piece of twine above red ribbon. Place 3 short pieces of twine over knot and tie again. Trim ends
Use E-Z Dots Permanent to fasten embossed piece with ribbons to card front.
Cut piece of blue cardstock to fit “thank you” die. Cover back with black Crafty Foam Tape.
Place die on card stock side. Pass through die cutting machine 2-3 times. (Paper and foam will be cut but backing usually is uncut.) Use tweezers to remove small pieces in letters. Remove outside pieces leaving die cut fastened to paper backing.
Lay die cut on card front to help with placement of stars. Apply stars to top of card.
Remove die cut. Sprinkle glitter over stars, press into stars and remove excess.
Fasten “Thank you” to card overlapping burlap ribbon.
Happy Memorial Day!
