A Sad Saturday!

Well one of our local farm boys was killed in a accident while using a backhoe last Monday and the last couple of days has been very hard on his family with the viewing and laying him to rest.  He was only 17 and was involved in so many activities here in Greencastle. There were the largest amount of people at his viewing that i have ever seen. He will be greatly missed by all.
 
I needed to make some cards for his family and without a lot of time i decided to borrow one of my fellow Rock Stars ideas Melissa for the layout and use it for their cards.  Thanks Melissa!!!

1. Stamp, color and Cut out images that you have chosen to use.



 
 
 
 
2. Using your 3 ¼” x 5” piece of Cardstock (Slider panel) , punch and glue tab to the right side of the piece

 of Cardstock . Stamp sentiment or decorate as desired and set aside.
 












 
3. Using one of your base Papers/Cardstock Mark with a pencil a line approx. 1” from each edge and 1 5/8” above the bottom of the Cardstock. Using your word window punch, start from one side of your cardstock punch 3 ½” line.




 
 
 
4. Take your 3” x 2” piece of cardstock, fold it in half and. punch with the 1” Circle punch, slightly overlapping the fold. Put a small amount of glue down the center of one of the circles and Close. Fold each edge up to create what looks like a C and a Backward C. See Photo

6. Put down your second piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of cardstock apply your 3 ¼” x 5” Panel on top of your 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece lining the right side edges up, ***DO NOT GLUE! Add pop dots around the 3 other sides of your base cardstock making sure that you are not touching your slider piece with the dots.


 
 
7. Remove your slider piece of Cardstock and glue to the back side of your ship tab.



 

8. Adhere your slider ship piece of cardstock to the Pop dots that you just added to the base piece and your
