Get it in Gear

Get It In Gear

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.

Patriotic Bee Card

This card is just a fun whimsical card to say “Hello” and let James know that we are thinking about him.

Patriotic Card

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.

Super Card for a Guy

Super Hero Card

Cas-ual Fridays is hosting a really fun challenge this week called Love Letters. The challenge is to create a clean and simple project that feature your letters in a creative way.

I paired up two different stamp sets to create my card. First, I used my Recollections, Comic Talk stamp set for the Super sentiment. And then I used my  Simon Says Stamp, Shoot for the Stars set for the smaller sentiment is from  The star punch is a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch. And finally I scored my card with 3 vertical lines on the left side to create a balance point to the big, bold Super word bubble.

Clean and Simple cards are sometimes a challenge for me. I always seem to add too much to them or not enough but, I think this time I got it right. This card would be fun to send to one of the guys on my list of birthdays for friends and family.

I am also entering my card into the A Blog Named Hero Challenge Snip and Stick. The challenge asks that you use paper piecing on your card. Although the paper piecing technique I used was very simple, I thought I would enter my card in all the same.

Happy Stamping,
