A while back, I mentioned sending cards to soldiers. What I didn’t tell you was that I actually have 3 servicemen that I am currently sending cards to while they are on active duty in the military. One is a classmate of my daughter, Christen, whose Marine Reserves unit was deployed to Afghanistan last summer. The other two are classmates of my own, one a career Navy officer who is currently out to sea on maneuvers, the other a career Army officer who was recently been deployed.
I was running out of time to make some cards for them since the last thing I sent was at Christmas, so I rummaged around and found these patriotic-looking cards. I made these last year for a card swap. The theme was Valentine’s and I tried to do something unconventional. I suppose I could save them to give as Valentine’s, but I think by changing them up a bit, I can put them to better purpose.
The changes to these cards were relatively quick and simple:
- Stamp the logbook over red hearts
- Stamp “Thank U” and punch with Large Decorative Lable punch to cover up another dark red heart
- Replaced the white cardstock sentiment inside the card.
What about you? Have you ever come back to a project you finished long ago and completely redesign in? I think I like this redesigned card much better than the original.
