Veterans Day Card

Today we have a card to thank all the veterans for their service.

To make this, I used patterned paper and vellum along with the Perfect Crafting Pouch. Before running vellum through your printer, treat the vellum with the pouch. You'll avoid smearing your image as well as dry the ink faster. Once the vellum is dry, trim your image to size.

To adhere the vellum, use the Best Glue Ever. You don't need a lot. I place the glue on the back (this is about it!) and use my finger to spread the glue to coat the back -- invisible coverage!

And I used scraps from the edges of my vellum to stamp with Jenni Bowlin dye ink. I retreated the paper before stamping, then lightly pounced the inked image to speed drying time. A few scraps, a new Dienamics banner die and the Best Glue Ever and I was ready to add my sentiment.

Love this card. What a great idea to use that iconic image. I love the way the patterns show through the vellum.

God bless our Veterans!
