Veterans' Day 2011

Today is Veterans' Day and across the USA, people are commemorating the bravery and sacrifice made by our nation's veterans. In that spirit, I wanted to share a card I made this evening.

I used the bargello technique to make the background of the card. (I could swear that I first saw this on OWH Stars and Stamps but I cannot find the post! I seem to remember a card with a blue background and a fish focal as the focal point.)

Anyway, all the patterned papers and the flag embellishment are from the K&Co Americana line. I love that line! I removed the back layer of foam from the flag and layered it on black so it would stand out more against the patterned papers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up All Natural (long ago retired) and the die cut is a scallop circle nestability from Spellbinders.

Happy Veterans' Day!

Cards shipped to OWH (as of 10/20/11): 1642

  1. Great Card. You've got this Bargello down pat. I'm afraid to even try it. That flag looks amazing backed up in black. It really stand out nicely. Thanks for sharing.
