Independence Day Cards for Vets

It's time to make cards for the residents of our Home for Veterans for the 4th of July. I'm doing four different designs, and here is one of them.
I used the Unity Carnivale Alpha to spell out FREE, and made a little banner. 
The "Thanks to you" was computer generated. 
 The paper is called Old Towne Tavern by The Paper Loft. 
I didn't have enough of any one design, so I used three or four different ones for the card fronts.
 I glued the banner pieces onto the linen thread, and mounted them on dimensionals. 
I wrapped the ends around vintage brads.
I'm sharing this on Unity's Friends With Flair!
Thanks for stopping in. Have an awesome weekend!

Grad Card For A Beautiful Young Lady

Tomorrow is the last graduation open house of the season for us. The young lady this card is for is our neighbor's granddaughter, and we've known her her whole life. Time sure does fly!
 The paper I used is from Crate Paper's Portrait Collection. So many beautiful papers! 
I used a stamp from Unity (I know, big surprise). The sentiment is from the January, 2011 Kit of the Month. Perfect for graduation.
I used the Deconstructing Jen Sketch. Instead of another piece of paper down the middle, I'm using the design of the paper. 
Deonstructed Sketch No. 56
