Sending a handmade card to someone who has served in the military is one small way to show appreciation for their service to our country. Today I have two cards appropriate for Veterans Day that feature stars and stripes made using our iCraft® Easy-Tear adhesive tape and sheets.
To create the Happy Veterans Day card position the plates of your die cutter just below the word “Happy” and cut from white cardstock. This partial die cutting creates the bottom portion of the card which is adhered over the pre-made blue card base. Cut the word “Happy” again from a sheet of iCraft® Easy-Cut adhesive and position on top of the die cut cardstock.
Peel off the liner and cover with black glitter. Press the glitter onto the adhesive and shake off excess.
Punch a star from a sheet of iCraft® Easy-Cut adhesive, adhere to card, peel off liner and cover with red glitter. Shake off excess. Stamp the small stars in red ink and the words “Veterans Day” in black ink.
For the next card, die cut the card front three times – once in black cardstock to create the outer frame, once in blue cardstock to create the upper piece and once from white cardstock to create the center oval and lower section.
Stamp the blue cardstock with the small white star image using white ink and stamp the sentiment on the oval section.
Create the stripes by adding three pieces of iCraft® Easy-Tear tape to the bottom section and cover with red glitter, as for the first card. Adhere all sections to a white card base.
Apply Deco Foil™ liquid adhesive to the front of three mini wooden stars. Once dry (the surface will be tacky to the touch), place a piece of gold Deco Foil™ color side up over the top and use your finger to press on the foil, which will transfer the foil to the star. Adhere to the front of the card using Small Zots™.
