American Pride DogTag

Created this DogTag using Stand & Salute Cricut cartridge. I bought the cartridge several yrs ago in an after Thanksgiving Day sale. Like the cartridge for its Patriotic images which include phrases like 'American Pride.'

Used core'dinations Dressed Blues cardstock which I thought was very appropriate for a Patriotic creation. Used red & white cardstock to add to the Patriotic theme. Added star buttons and flag button in which I cut the back off of so it would be flat for affixing on tag. Added ribbon.

My hubby was in the Air Force during the Vietnam War.

Supplies List

buttons: stars, U.S. flag - cut back off
Cricut cartridge: Stand & Salute 4 1/2" DogTag American Pride
paper - cardstock - red, white, core'dinations Dress Blue
ribbon: Celebrate It Basic-Basic
