Anzac Day /ˈænzæk/ is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served".
I made this card using the CAS theme at Always Fun Challenges and the graffiti theme at Inkspirational. I did think I was using the sketch at Paper Players, until I started writing this post and realised I forgot the strips at the side, so I'm not going to link up there, but do want to give them credit.
This wasn't the direction I was planning on going with the graffiti theme. I was going to use another set and create a more realistic graffiti wall, but I came across this stamp set and decided it would be great for my youngest's upcoming 15th birthday, as he is an avid gamer.
I chose a number of sentiments from the Level Up set, cutting them up where necessary, and stamped the background using Fog ink. I then die-cut with a stitched rectangle die and set it aside while I worked on the rest of the elements. The game controller was die-cut from various SSS cardstocks and assembled and the sentiment was white embossed onto Audrey Blue cardstock and then die-cut.
To assemble the card, I took a stitched vellum paper rectangle and adhered the controller and sentiment onto that using foam tape. I then added liquid glue to the vellum piece and glued that to the stamped panel. I finished with some Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Thanks so much for visiting!
