Patriotism is in the air with the upcoming holidays and elections. Red Rubber Designs has released several all purpose stamps this month with that theme in mind.
My trio of tags uses two of the new releases, Liberty and United We Stand. I used patterned paper from the Just Like Dad paper stack on a black cardstock base. On the center tag, the images are stamped on a green vellum overlay with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. On the two side tags, I stamped the images on the patterned paper beneath the vellum layer with the "bless the USA" stamped on the vellum. The photos are of my father (USAAF) and my father-in-law (Navy) taken around 1945. The tags are finished with a large eyelet from the Amberly Grace hardware assortment and a short length of ball chain and connector.
