Memorial Day 2016 – Red Poppies Thank You Note Card


remembrance poppies thank you note

Today is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who died serving our country in the military.

I looked through my photo collection, trying to find a nice photo of Arlington National Cemetery to post for Memorial Day. Alas, nothing I found was of posting quality.

Knowing that the red poppy symbolizes Remembrance, I thought a thank you card with red poppies would work for Memorial Day.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Blue (retired), Real Red, inks – Copic 100, C1, R02, R24, R29, YG0000, YG03, Yg25, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangles), Stampin’ Up! (banner), embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Silver Pearl.

  1. It does work indeed. Lovely card and a totally appropriate sentiment to accompany it.

  2. Kathy, please feel free to use any of these in the future for Arlington/Memorial day inspiration.

    • Oh, Mike, that is so sweet! I appreciate your offer! I know I have more photos from Arlington here in my house…but I only found a pack from 1988. I must put on my thinking cap and figure out “how old were the kiddos when we took them?” so I can figure out which photo box or file folder to start my search.
