Hello and welcome to the September One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop; this month’s theme was I Need A Hero. I wanted to create a couple projects that could be given to a officer to show gratitude and appreciation for their courage. I created a nice card and a cute box that could be filled with treats for the recipient. I used the Ribbon of Courage Stamp set to create everything along with the Support Ribbon Framelits. Here’s a look at my gift set.
For the card I stamped the Ribbon from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp set in Blueberry Bushel and then used the matching framelits to cut it out. I added it to a piece of Whisper white cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Blueberry Cardstock and ran it through the big shot not once but twice using the Simple Stripes Textured Impression Embossing Folder. Once one way to make straight lines then again cross way to make a plaid pattern. I added that to a piece of whisper white (4 x 5 1/4) then added it to the cardbase. I simplly stamped courage under where the ribbon was going to go.
For my 3d project this month I create a box that has the blue ribbons stamped all the way around it. I started out with 8 1/2″ paper squared and stamped the ribbon in blueberry busel all over it before scoring with the Simply Score Scoring Tool and folding up the box and adding tear & tape as the adhesive. Since this was a gift box it needs the extra strong adhesive to make sure it’s strong. The box measures 4 x 2 x 2. So it’s a good size box that you can put a lot of sweets or other goodies inside. I created a tag by simply stamping the ribbon again on scrap paper and cut it out using the framelits and stamped courage on the same piece of scrap paper and used the Classic Label punch and punched it out. I added two mini dimensionals behind it and ran some night of navy bakers twine through the top lop and secured it to the blueberry busel ribbon. Here’s a look at both projects together again.
