Here is another card I made for James when he is in boot camp. I think I will send this one in the last week before he leaves for his AIT (Advanced Individual Training) at Fort Eustes in Virginia. He really will be gearing up for the second half of his training.
James will be training to become a Chinook Helicopter mechanic and his AIT will last 19 weeks! There will be a lot of class time to go along with his hands on training. Hopefully he will find it to be interesting work.
I will be playing along with the CAS-ual Friday Challenge: Over the Edge with this card. In order to make sure that the card will still fit in a traditional A2 envelope I cut down the width of the card first and the applied the gear over the edge.
This card is just a fun whimsical card to say “Hello” and let James know that we are thinking about him.
This card is based on a sketch featured today on one of Operation Write Home’s blogs. The example card had patriotic colors and I figured I would run with that since I was creating cards for my future soldier.
