Ginger Snap Scraps Memorial Day Blog Hop~Day 1

Hello everyone and welcome to the first ever Ginger Snap Scraps Blog Hop. The DT is featuring projects themed for Memorial Day.
 
If you have just come from  Ashley's blog, then you are in the right spot. If you are just stopping by and would like to jump in on all the fun, then please start from the beginning by clicking here. 

My project for today's hop is a step card version I first did back in February that you can see here. This is such an easy card put together with endless possibilities. 
So here is my card as a tribute to all those who served and are serving now to protect our country and freedom!

I used Bazzill paper as my base for the card along with the red for the die cuts from the Cricut cartridge Stand and Salute. Other pattern papers are left over from last year's 4th of July cards. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the top scallops and a bit of ribbon from my stash. A card would not be finished without some inking of edges using Tim Holtz ink. All or similar products can be found in the Ginger Snap Scrap online store now not to mention awesome prices.
