A Naval 100th Birthday Card

Welcome Back!

First let me say, thank you so much for the comments on last weeks post.  They mean the world to me and also my daughters.

Recently I have started taking custom orders for my cards.  I'm not going to get rich doing this.  I love to make cards that are very special for someone and that is my reward (besides I could never charge what my cards are really worth).  So here are the lyrics for this weeks card.

~Dress Whites Navy Guy
   Scrap Factory Doll Builder Program
      -body no open toes
      -Hair Edwin
      -Outfit Winter Suit #5 (top and sleeves)
      -Sailor Boy Outfit for pants and hat
~Navy Fatigues Guy
   Military Uniforms
      -Military Uniform #3
      -Navy Fatigue patterned paper
~Battleship Trace in SCAL4
  Pirate Palz in the ScrappyDew Vault
~I used Recollections scraps for the piecings
~Background papers are from Paper wishes and ColorBok
~Sure Cuts A Lot 4 software SCAL4
~My 24" Silver Bullet Pro Cutter

Whew, that's a long list...I'm just glad I didn't list every tool I used.  So here is what I finally came up with.


This is the insignia for radio operator

Having so much fun with foiling

Even lined the envelope

I certainly hope my customer likes the card.  Now she can come and get it before the due date (always nice to get a project done early).

Coming up I have a set of birthday note cards and a happy summer vacation card to get started on.  

Please keep all the people effected by the crazy weather in your thoughts and prayers!

Bright Blessings, Jana

  2. The cards came out beautifully. Is this why you wanted to know if you could foil vellum?
