Support our Troops!

Hello Dies R Us Friends!
Darlene here and today I have a set of cards to share with you with thoughts of our sons & daughters that are fighting in the war overseas in hopes of keeping our freedom here in the states and making the world a better place to live in.  God Bless each and every one of them!!!

 I began with the Cheery Lynn Designs 'ARMY' #B513 die set (5 pieces) and went from there.




My background 'desert camo' paper was printed from an image I found online and, I created my own 'camo' paper to die cut the Army images from using green and brown inks sponged onto a scrap piece of white card stock.

Other dies used are:
(Thinking of You)

One thing we must remember when making cards to send to our troops is that there is NO glitter or anything shiny used on them.  These types of elements can be detected by the enemy and could cost them their lives.  So, by using the die cuts, I've been able to make them a little more personal without any elements that could bring harm to them.

OH and I have one more card to share in which I used the same die set but a different camo pattern (also found online) for the background ...

There are other branches of the military available in die sets ... please be sure to check them out at our Dies R Us Store and get busy creating to help keep the spirits of our troops up while they are away from home.  Also available in the store are dies for the Police and Fire Fighters.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  3. WOW... I just know that military is that strict, no glitter or anything, as I know quite little about it. And your cards are awesome, Darlene. Great job!

  4. Great ideas for using these dies. I love them but find I am not very creative using them. These would be wonderful when we make our troop cards.
