Captain Tom's Birthday Card

I have made this card for Captain Tom Moore. A remarkable gentleman!

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red, black and white card. I embossed the white card with a Xcut embossing folder.

I cut the poppies using a die I had free with a magazine.

I die cut the Fabulous at 100 with Tonic dies. I printed the sentiment and die cut it with a die from a nesting set from The Works and used the next size die in the set to cut a shape to mount the sentiment before adding it to my card. I completed my card with stars that I cut with a punch.

  10. Hi Beckie, Capt. Tom Moore is a remarkable man to raise all that money to help support the Doctors and Nurses in the UK, I think our news said that over 250,000 cards have been received and Capt. Tom intends on reading every one of them himself. Thank you for sharing your special card with us at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, good luck in the prize draw.. Megan DT LPoCF
