Loyal & True Clear-Mount Stamp Set
Item Number: 143879


To create the calendar stand, cut at piece of 8.5” by 11” of card stock in half lengthwise. Turn the piece of 4.25” by 11” cardstock horizontally and score at 4”, 7” and 10.25.” Add two strips of tacky tape to the 0.75” section but don’t adhere it until the end. It is easier to decorate the calendar stands while they are flat. Add 4” by 3” pieces of designer series paper or printed patterns from the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack or the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. Cut a slit for the calendar clip before adhering the calendar in place.

Stamp the soldier in Old Olive and the “Loyal & True so proud of you” and “We are in this together no matter how far apart” sentiments in Old Olive or Soft Suede from the Loyal & True stamp set. Cut out the soldier using the Brother Scan N’ Cut with a 0.4” outline distance and a blade depth of 5. Punch out the badges with the Best Badge punch. Punch out the “We are in this together” sentiment from the Pretty Label Punch. Using a sponge, ink around the edges using Lemon Lime Twist. Stamp the star from the Wood Words stamp set onto the sticky notes in Soft Suede ink. Add ribbons, enamel dots and urban underground embellishments as desired.
