Helmar Adhesive

Hi , today I wold like to  share a very significant date with all of you.  November 11 was chosen as the official date for Veterans Day in reference to the ending of World War I.  Families with members who have served in the military appreciate a day of remembrance that can be share with all of us.  We must always remember and demonstrate to the young the gratitude we have for those that have served in the military.
 To-day, I am sharing a couple of cards, which truly showcase the vibrate red of the poppy in remembrance of
Veterans Day.  

Visit Helmar's Blog for full details on this project.

Leading to my completed cards, I have gathered my supplies of Helmar Decoupage & Craft Paste and Clearsnap Ink along with my stamps.

I love the red jewel tone of the mulberry paper.

This side view of the card, shows how well the Helmar Decoupage paste dries clear and crisp to match the additional petals of the poppy.

The second card showcases the small poppies and both cards have words from ScrapMatts chipboard that have been inked with Clearsnap.

Please remember your Veterans on November 11th.
