Challenge #127 Mother's DaysThe current challenge at My Grafico Crafts (#127) is Mother's Day. This challenge runs until May 11th. You still have plenty of time to craft a spectacular Mom's Day project and post it on our blog HERE
The design team has some beautiful Mother's day cards to share with you. Just click HERE to be inspired:)
My next project (card) was inspired by this jar image. I had to ponder what to put into the jar that was a bit unusual. Mind you, I had some other unique ideas: bugs, chocolate, soap, buttons but they just didn't inspire me. I had been thinking about a friend who's husband is deployed and how difficult it is for her and their two sons. I called and asked her if I could make a Father's Day card for the boys to send to their Dad. She was delighted. Here is my card:
The jar holds "hugs and kisses"! I found military DP and an Army tag. The ribbon of course is Yellow...waiting for his return.
This is the inside of the card:
Coincidentally, the distressed ink just happened to look Army Green! I left plenty of space for each of them to write a short note.
Once I had the idea, this was an easy card. I could not find individual camouflage DP so I purchases a kit. The kit included the Army tag, the gold button, Military DP, and several military related words.
The sentiments were computer generated. Although you may not see it in the picture, the jar has a clear plastic overlay to make it shiny. I adhered it with the yellow ribbon.
All my supplies were purchased at our local Michael's.
The image is from My Grafico Crafts.
