Loyal and True with the Best Badge punch

For todays project i have gone back to the annual catalogue. 
It's easy to get caught up with the excitement of Christmas projects and we forget some of the gorgeous products we have available all year round.

'Loyal and True' is mainly aimed at servicemen or woman but it could also be just to tell someone how proud you are of them. Maybe they have a new job, passed an exam etc. 

I have used a 5x5 inch card blank in whisper white then taken some dsp from the 'colour theory' paper stack to layer on top.
Choosing coordinating inks i then stamped over some kraft card using the little star stamp from the 'Loyal and True' stamp set. 
Using the 'Best Badge' punch to cut these out and also the stamped loyal and true sentiment gives the perfect shape with minimum fuss.
A strip of ribbon folded is glued between the badges to give some added interest. 

The first card uses 'Dapper Denim' and 'Real Red' as the main colours whilst the second card is a combination of 'Old Olive' and 'Crumb Cake' 

I really like how these turned out and they are so quick to make.

If you would like to learn how to make cards yourself then drop me a message at rachhome@msn.com and i would be delighted to do a 1-1 or small group class for you. 
If you would like to order any Stampin Up products you can do so 24/7 using my online shop (links at the top of my homepage).
