Handmade Veterans Day Card

This Sunday, November 11, is Veterans Day. This is a day when citizens of the United States express gratitude to all the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces. I made this card to honor those who have served our country.

I will enter this card in Mo's Challenge #159 - Anything Goes. 

This is how I made the card;
(1.) I started with a blank kraft card that measures 5" by 7".
(2.) I removed a map of the Middle East from an old World Atlas and stitched it to the kraft card.
(3.) I used the digital image "Support The Troops" from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop. I colored the image with Copic Sketch Markers and cut it out.
(4.) I found the "United States Army Retired" decal from a thrift shop. I applied the decal to the center of the map.
(5.) I used foam squares to attach the colored digital image to the lower left corner of the card.
(6.) I embellished the card with a United States flag sticker and three small stars in the lower right corner.

Thank you for visiting me and taking a look at my latest card. I would love for you to FOLLOW this blog. You may use either the Google Friend Connect or the Networked Blog widget to show your support and encouragement.
