I attend an outdoor fitness program 3 days a week called Bootcamp LA. It's an outdoor fitness program that resembles a military style bootcamp. It's soo much fun and a lot of HARD work!!! The instructors are the most amazing people I've ever met!! Truly motivating!! I wanted to make a birthday card for Major Kerwin that was super personal....here's the end result.
Major Kerwin was in the US Airforce and was also finished tops in the para rescue special ops indoctrination!! AMAZING!!! This also gave me lots of room for customizing!!! You'll notice I put his name patch on, the branch of Military he was in and the patch for para rescue, he even got the Major rank insignia on his collars which are the little gold things.
Now here's where it gets really fun!!! When you open the fatigues it opens up to the Bootcamp LA
T-Shirt!! Super cute right!?! Guess what??? Not done yet!!!
THEN the Bootcamp LA T-Shirt folds down into Superman uniform!!!! Sooo much fun!!! Of course, I had to dry brush in the 6 pack abs!!! I mean the Major has an 8 pack, but the 6 pack worked on the card...hehe!
The sentiment is set up to speak to each layer:
A Warrior.... (this is what he calls us at Bootcamp)
A Super Hero......
I had SOOOO much fun making this card!!! Not to mention my boyfriend actually helped me with finding the correct patches and emblems!! Yay team work!!! He loved doing it....hmmm....maybe a card maker in training!! HAH!!!! I really hope you enjoy this card as much as I do!!!
