Veteran's Day Hero Card

I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to all who have served and are serving in our military!

My daughter's school has a Veteran's Day program every year and she is soo proud to have her Big Daddy there. My dad (her Big Daddy) served in the Navy in Vietnam and both my grandfathers served during WWII in different branches and needless to say they are/were my heroes!

The Imaginisce design team is celebrating our Veterans all week on the blog, doing little mini blog hops.  Today, it's Rebecca, Tiffany and I so I'm guessing you made it here from Tiffany's blog. If not, make sure to go back to them and see their cool stuff!  I made this project my mixing different lines and enlisting my CAMEO.
Creative How-to: I cut the heart using the "heart flag" cutting file I downloaded from the Silhouette store. It doesn't actually cut is as a card so I adhered it to a 6 x 12 piece of white cardstock and made it into a card.  After I pieced everything together, I wanted to hang a dog tag so I made one by drawing a rounded rectangle in the software program and writing the word HERO. I cut it out of white cardstock and misted it using my homemade grey mist mixture. I think using silver embossing powder would make this card really ROCK but I didn't have any at the time!  I used baker's twine to tie it around the heart shaped flag card.

Your card design is fabulous. I love the idea of a star for our veterans. The hero die cut is a perfect piece to finish the card.
