Letter to my Marine Recruit
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Wellcome to the Poppystamps blog, today I am sharing a card I made to send off to my son who is in Phase 3 of Marine boot Camp in San Diego California.

I wanted it to look like what the dress uniform looks like. I cut strips of blue and red cardstock and adhered to the panel cut out with the Letters die.

Cut off and excess and mount to card base. I used two layers of the Letters Die in hopes of making it a bit more dimensional. I then red embossed the Poppystamps sentiment at the bottom. Basic masculine card.
