USMC Retirement Card...

Recycling...again! I took Joe's retirement invite and re-purposed the EGA (eagle,globe, and anchor) for a nice dress blue's card.It's not all too often I make masculine cards, but after some thought, the EGA was a perfect fit and it had nice embossing as well. I used my nesty circles die to cut out the EGA and used a gold cs to matte.For added texture I broke out my dusty Cuttlebug diamond embossing folder. I didn't want to overshadow the design of the card (it resembles the dress blue Marine Corps pants) so along with the embossing folder I also used PTI's Woodgrain bg for the red pant stripe. A little stitching and jumbo eyelets (SU!) finish up this fun card.
