Memorial Day Card featuring Tim Holtz products with Shari Carroll

Welcome to the Blog everyone! It’s Shari here with a Memorial Day card featuring Tim Holtz products. I’ve pulled dies and papers together to create a representation of the American flag for my card with meaning.

The Harlequin die was a perfect fit to create stripes over red pattern paper. I was surprised at how well everything fit together.

The cloth like look of the blue paper from the Dapper collection, represents the fabric of a uniform. The heart is connected to the uniform with Idea-ology ring fasteners and a swivel clasp. The typed token “Brave” is placed to the right as a medal would be placed on a uniform.

I’ve used some heavy gesso on the heart to give it additional texture, once that was dry, I embellished with mirrored stars.

I’ve left all the metals and stars pristine, un-destressed or painted. I chose all my idea-ology pieces in the same color tone for coordination with the “Brave” token.  The final addition to this card is the ever important word for Memorial Day… remember.
