While not all cardmakers like to include an inside sentiment, I do. I also like to stamp the matching envelopes. Operation Welcome Home Maryland doesn't require envelopes. The first card reflects both the card cover and the inside message. I normal stamp the inside before building the card.
I made 24 of these cars using CTMH products. I used Cocoa cardstock (X5642) on a white card base and Desert Sand (1273) for the helmut base. Much to my disappointment, I ran out of my cocoa cardstock . . . and I didn’t even have any chocolate on hand to substitute! I also CTMH Exclusive Inks Cocoa (Z2114), Vanilla Cream (Z2169) and New England Ivy (Z2135).
I used the following CTMH Stamps:
- Welcome Home (D1370)
- Around the Block (D1377)
- For Every Occasion (D1187)
- Hero’s Pride (C1315)
- Just Like You (C1300)
- Dainty Thoughts (C1350)
I used my stippling tool from our Texture Tools set (Z1298) for my background on the second card.
