Card for My Airman - Courage from Stampin' Up!

As a mother of a US Air Force Airman  I found that one of the first stamp sets I HAD to have when I signed on to be a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! was the set called "Courage." 

The feature stamp is simple but powerful. I honestly wish I could make a card for every US military member with this stamp on it.

My son was coming home last weekend so I put together an easel card for him with the hope he'd like it enough to take it to work to display on his desk. After he read it the first thing he said is "I want to take this to work to set on my desk."  I have a hard time making cards for guys because I love frilly embellishments. Putting this card together I had to remember it was for my son and then try to keep it masculine without being too boring.

Of course I made this card with rubber stamp,  cardstock, ink, buttons, sticky strip and Stampin' Write Markers from Stampin' UP!. I also used Shapelie files by Penny Duncan(her version of Nesties) for the shapes and bubble stickers from my scrapbook stash.

Thank you for stopping by and if you'd like to leave a comment, I'd be glad to have them.

Take care!
