Armed Forces Day

Today is Armed Forces Day which honors all currently active military branches.
You may already know the difference but in case you don't, Memorial Day honors those who were fallen in the line of duty, Veterans Day honors those who once served their country but are no longer on active duty, and Armed Forces Day honors those who are currently active.   

I have designed the NEW Whimsy Stamps Military Collection of card making products in honor of our fallen heroes, active military, veterans, and for military spouses and families as well. And yes there is a day dedicated to them too, you can see a post about that HERE.

I first stamped the flag from the Military Heroes stamp set onto a khaki colored card stock. The flag comes in two separate pieces so it makes it super easy to stamp the two different colors.

I used the largest dog tag die from the Military Die Set and cut that out with the same khaki card stock, then cut out the USA portion and placed it over the flag with foam tape.

Using the same die set I cut out the 3 soldiers and also added them onto the card with foam tape.

And lastly I cut out two of the smallest dog tags from silver card stock and used a sentiment from the Military Families stamp set to heat emboss the "proud" in silver.

I threaded some silver cording through the openings and then matted onto a black card base to complete my Armed Forces Day card. The only item from the NEW Whimsy Stamps Military Collection that I didn't use on this card is the Military Camo background stamp.

A very special THANK YOU to ALL currently active military men and woman serving our country.
