Courage & Honor

Hello stampers,

Today is Throwback Thursday for 2 retired stamp sets. For those that may not know, I am the wife of a retired Marine, so I've kept all of the military sets Stampin' Up! has ever had. One of the Marines who served under my husband is about to retire himself soon & we'll be going to his ceremony, so this is the card I made for him.

I started with a Real Red Cardstock base & stamped it using Real Red Ink with the retired Camouflage Background stamp. For the image, I used the retired Courage & Honor stamp of the flag raising in Iwo Jima & stamped it on Basic White Cardstock using Memento Black Ink. I die-cut this piece & a Wild Wheat Cardstock layer using the Deckled Rectangle Dies then adhered them together before adding them to the base. Since I couldn't find a sentiment to use on the front I added a congratulations on the inside & wrote a message.

    • Base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
