Not usual for me to post on a Wednesday, I know...wanted to share with you real quick a cute dude card I made for my wee Army Cadet who will be graduating from CTC Blackdown 2 week General Training course tomorrow.

I couldn't be more proud - other than he could have called home more than once in two weeks....sheesh!!

Nonetheless, he graduates tomorrow and will be home on Friday morning, so I wanted to make him a "You Rock!" card that he'll get (hopefully) tomorrow if Dad and Grandpa can find him in a crowd of 2000 cadets!!

Sending out a super proud shout out to all the 1626 West Niagara Army Cadets who spent time at camp this summer! You all rock and are indeed #canadasfinest

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Skull design paper (SU)
  • Just Jawing stamp set (SU)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Mini ink blending tool (Tim Holtz)
  • Fishtail / Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)
  • Foam squares to pop up a few of the skulls for a 3-D effect
Here are a few pictures of his departure for camp on August 2...ya...I am THAT mum!


  1. Super cute card, great pictures of the cadet. you must be proud of him.
