Happy Memorial Day!


Although the stamps used on this card are retired, I hope you enjoy this patriotic card for Memorial Day.  You probably have something similar if you wanted to duplicate this card or one like it.  The focal point of this card is the "God Bless America" stamp by Stampin' Up!  This was a special edition single stamp released by Stampin' Up! in remembrance of September 11, 2001.  The entire purchase price of the stamp was donated to the September 11th Fund created by the United Way and the New York Community Trust to provide services for the victims and their families.  I wasn't even a demo when the stamp came out, just bought it from my upline as a customer, although it wasn't long until I became a demo.  I used my Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the different parts of the stamp.  The other stars on the card are from a retired stamp set "In the Stars".  I used the Top Note die with the Big Shot, cutting out one in white and one in red and trimming the white along the score lines to fit as a layer on the red.  The ribbon is current and is the 1/2" striped grosgrain in Real Red.
