Our Men & Woman in Service

Happy Monday!

I have a quick post to share before I head out in the snow to pick up by girl from school.

My card was inspired by two challenges, MFT Sketch & the January ODBD challenge.  

When I read the January ODBD challenge, I thought how PERFECT!  I received two stamp sets from OWH  and they are MFT stamps!  I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with each challenge separately, but together, the inspiration just kept flowing.  

 I used MFT Blueprint die sets 15 & 18 for the design of my card to fit my take on the sketch.  

I added some clear Wink of Stella to the center border of white and the stars.  This seems to break up the 'plainness' of the card.  I wanted the policewoman stamp to be the focus of the card...but it needed a bit of something, and the glimmer did it.  :-)

To finish of the inside, I stamped Thank You from the stamp set (which was part of a larger I just masked off what I didn't need.)   For a bit of fun, I added some of the stars from the die cutting of the front panel.

The kids and I plan on filling out this card expressing our appreciation of the continued service of our local police department.

  1. Fantastic card, Tonya! I love stars so much, and using them in place of the scallops is so great. Also love how you just focused on the head and shoulders of the stamp rather than the whole body.
