Congratulations, Eagle Scout!

Congratulations, Eagle Scout!

(inside:  You did it!)

One of the things I love about card making is being able to customize a card to fit any occasion, situation, or subject.  My friend’s son was being honored for the well-deserved achievement of becoming an Eagle Scout, and I was invited to his Court of Honor.  I needed a card to fit the occasion but saw nothing in my travels that was made just for congratulating scouts.  It was great to be able to come up with something that worked, and I had a lot of fun making it!

I started with the digital paper/image from Ladybird Press called “Boy Scout Oath Print” that I purchased on Etsy.  At my request, the shop owner was nice enough to also send me the blank wood-grained background file (without the words) that I used for my greeting panel.  Thanks, Carlee!!

I used Gina K Dark Chocolate and Sandy Beach card stock for the card base and mats.

I purchased the Eagle Scout sticker on ebay, but the colors did not match those on the background that well, so I scanned and printed the sticker image on a piece of vellum, cut it out, and glued it to a piece of Gina K Sandy Beach card stock.  The color of the card stock through the vellum made the whites of the original sticker more of an off-white and dulled the reds and blues to be closer to the background.  I cut a frame with dies from the Spellbinders Classic Ovals (large and small) sets out of the Dark Chocolate and adhered it on top of the vellum to hide the glue dots that were visible around the edges.

The greeting stamp originally said, “Congratulations, You did it!” (unknown brand).  I cut the stamp apart and used the “You did it!” half on the inside of the card.  Both were stamped with Gina K Dark Chocolate ink.

Thanks for checking out my card project!
