This week's MWT was to use dry embossing. I used a scroll embossing folder on the red cardstock. The image is our infamous OWH mascot Ciara from Stamper's Best and the sentiment is from SRM Stickers.
Sandy is on a mission to bring her postal workers in Federal Way, WA lots and lots of cards thanking them for their service so I thought a patriotic Ciara was the perfect choice! What a nice idea to show them how much they are appreciated!! Only a few days left to get them in so hurry!! :-) You can view the mail room challenge request below...
I trimmed all of the patterned paper pieces with no regard to the direction of the pattern so I had to wing it and adhere them vertically instead of horizontally. It appears that I missed a layer too. Why is it you don't see these things until it's ready to post?? They still turned out ok I think lol.
Thanks for stopping by ~ Hope you have a great day!
Here's our awesome OWH mascot, Ciara! You can find her in the Stamper's Best store. Papers for the next 4 cards came from The Paper Studio - Proud to Serve pack.
Saluting images were cut using the Stand & Salute Cricut cartridge. Sentiment - MFT Stamps
The dog tag and star were cut from shiny silver paper with the Stand & Salute Cricut cartridge
To create the quilt, I used a Fiskars star punch, DCWV Stack 8 paper and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Quite time consuming but I think the end result is worth it!
I stopped at the Shell station for gas yesterday. I always listen to American Family Radio in the morning to get my day started off just right. I noticed a man in uniform in the store. When he cam out his truck happened to be on the other side of my pump. I leaned around the corner and thanked him for his service. Glancing at his name badge...it said Christ. It was a touching moment coming in contact with a real Hero and being able to say "I saw Christ today". Hope you have a blessed day!
