A Fallen Texas Marine…


I don’t watch live TV often, but we’ve had a lot of rain the last few days, so I decided to watch our news on Thursday to see what the weather was going to do.  During the news program, they mentioned a local Marine who was killed on Tuesday.  I don’t know the family, but it really touched me.  The man’s wife is pregnant with their first child…a child who will never meet his/her father!  That saddened me and caused me to make this card for his wife.  I have never made a sympathy card before, so I hope this one is okay. 




The front of the card with a shot of the envelope.


A close-up of the sentiment on the front of the card.  I used a black gel pen to do little dots around the edges of the sentiment.


Another shot of the front of the card with it opened and standing up.


Final photo – a shot of the inside of the card.  I used a Copic marker to add the red around the outer part of the star and then went around the star with diamond stickles.  Don’t look at my messy handwriting…EEK! 


I used:

  • Card Base - Cricut Wild Card Cartridge page 59
  • Card Envelope – Cricut Wild Card Cartridge Page 59
  • Sentiment – Cricut Wild Card Cartridge page 32
  • Patterned Paper - The Paper Studio All Seasons Stack
  • Bling on inside of card - Diamond Stickles
  • Copic – B34 and R29
  • Black Gel Pen – detail on sentiment

Thanks for stopping by!
