Patriotic Hello

A family friend (in the Navy) is being deployed today and will be gone from 6 to 8 months.  Made this card to send to him sometime during his deployment - that's the reason for the patriotic colors in January! I actually made two like this -- I'm keeping one back to use as a masculine birthday card since masculine cards are NOT easy for me to come up with and I liked how this one turned out!
Supplies used:
  • Star template
  • Square punch
  • Circle punch
  • Swiss Dots Embossing folder (Provo Craft)
  • Candy Cane Stripe Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)
  • Small Alphabet set (Studio G)
  • Black felt tip pen 
    • Faux Stitching
  • Two blue eyelets
  • Twine
  • Martha Stewart Scoring Board
    • Scored two lines above the sentiment and then used Crayola Markers to highlight them

Very, very nice! I'm sure he'll appreciate the card when he's homesick! :)
