Hello and welcome to this fortnights Tip Top Tuesday Challenge. For this challenge we are challenged to use a number on our project and although July 4th is a little bit away I thought this fabulous digi called Army Bear by Meljens fit the bill. I used a box card tutorial. You can find the tutorial here and many more tutorials tutorial tab here. You can also find the demensional banner tutorial here and many more tutorials under my tutorial tab here.
We have a fabulous tutorial over at Tip Top Tuesday Challenge Blog on the latest craze in card making. The box card. Go on over and check it out.
Here's my take on the box card using that great digital image! I would love to send this to Operation Write Home as a donated card. Wouldn't it be so COOL to have a little boy or girl get this from his daddy! Not so sure OWH could use this with the weird dimensions but I'll have to shoot Sandy an email and find out! If you want to learn more about OWH click the badge on the right.
Here's an angled view that gives you a better look at the side and how I popped up the sentiment banner.

The best part of this project is my recycled item! I used pieces cut from a 12 x 12 plastic paper storage envelope. After a while they crack and become messy so I cut up what's left of some solid pieces and use them to prop up elements in the card. You can see one of the strips attached to the eagle.
I had lots of fun making this card. There is so much to look at and it is so darn cute!
