Military Spouse Appreciation Day

Did you know that the Friday before Mother's Day every year is Military Spouse's Appreciation Day? We all thank our veterans and rightfully so but their families give to their country too.

If you know anyone who is married to an active military member the new Military Families stamp set is perfect for cards to let them (and other family members) know you appreciate their sacrifices too.

I started with a red card base and rounded the bottom corners.

Then I added a slightly shorter white matte on top that was edged with hearts from the Straight Edgers dies. I love this die set, it has 8 different edging options for just the right amount of that little extra "something" needed.

Using the Military Families clear stamp set, I stamped the stars portion of the heart with blue ink (the heart comes in two pieces so it's super easy for two different colors). And the stripes with red ink. The heart is even more versatile as two separate pieces as you can see in this case I decided not to connect them so I could stamp the sentiment "dividing" them.

I added the completed stamped portion onto a glitter blue cardstock and popped up the stars portion of the heart on foam tape for a little dimension.

THANK YOU to all the military spouses around the world. I know first hand, even many years later, how hard the waiting can be.
