Never Forget

It's Veterans Day here in the United States and Remembrance Day in Canada and I wanted to make a card to mark the occasion and give thanks to all the veterans.

For the image I used Inspired by Flowers 3 from My Favorite Things. I stamped the poppy with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It bending card then coloured it with copic markers. I cut it out using the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics then I inked around the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

The layout is FMS60 but I elongated the two strips because my focal point was a little large. The patterned papers are from the Teresa Collins Fabrications collection. I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the red patterned paper then used the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out the Wild Cherry layer. The base layers are Kraft and Jellybean Green and the card base is Whip Cream. I added some pearls to finish off the card. I didn't add any words or sentiments because I think the poppy speaks volumes.

Never forget.

Here are the supplies I used:
