Cards for First Responders! Featuring Layered Stamping and Blending + Shaker (+ Free Gift!)

Hello friends, it’s Nina-Marie Trapani here with you! We have so many amazing people who serve as first responders in our country, and what better way to thank them for their service than a handmade card?

These cards all feature our Simon exclusive First Responders stamp and die set. Each card features colors to accent the service emblem used.

Bonus tip! You could change the sentiment to create a Father’s Day or thank you card. For my cards, I’ve chosen the Simon Says Stamp Proud of You die.

For the stamping and blending on the EMS card, I used Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. I also paired Mustard Seed with this and all the other cards to blend the Scattered Stars pattern over the emblems. The cardstock colors include Peacock, Slate, and Mermaid.

On the police card, I used Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. The cardstocks were Soft Navy, Moonstone, and Slate.

For the fire department card, I paired Fired Brick, Barn Door, and Ripe Persimmon together for a “firetruck” vibrancy! The cardstocks used were Schoolhouse Red, Lipstick Red, and Slate.

These cards all feature gold sequins in the shaker and gold foil cardstock stars cut from Simon’s Mini Star Party die. They are so easy to make – and I hope you will watch the video to see for yourself!

  3. Your cards are beautiful, and I appreciate the sentiment behind them, BUT–mothers, sisters, daughters are first responders also. So not just for fathers and Fathers Day.

  4. Wonderful cards and great to show appreciation for these great people who protect and take care of us. Thanks for showing us your talents.

  5. I bought this stamp and die set when they first came out. Thanks for showing me another great way to use them!
