You're in the Army Now

Our nephew is having a going away party as he leaves for bootcamp in a few weeks. I got out good old Stand and Salute (that I got for the ribbon) and made a few cuts to see what I could come up with. I remembered that my hubby had given me this odd packing material that to me reminded of that camoflage stuff they cover the jeeps and camps with. It was perfect for my cards. I stuck with a navy and crimson color scheme and added a bit of yellow ribbons.  I need to make about 10 of these cards. Here are the first 3. The card blanks and the envelopes were also a surprise cut on this same cartidge cut at 8 3/4". Folded in half it is a nice size to work with. I think these are a good start.
