Military cards with the April Scraps of Darkness kit

So, I had to change things up a bit.
 My oldest son is currently in boot camp for USCG. 
He cannot receive mail that is thick,bulky or draws attention. 
I knew I could create something using the April Scraps of Darkness kit (Laura's Wish).

For the first one, I collaged the die cuts with the fun rub ons to a 5 x 7 size card, 
The postal themes in the kit were perfect!

I made the second one elongated to fit a regular letter sized envelope and fussy cut the clocks from the pp.

 Yes-I made flat cards!
 I love how quickly I could pull these together and the little date card where I circled his graduation date :) 
Again, these SOD kits are so versatile-no matter what your style of scrapping.

I am counting down the days to his graduation on June 12!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea! I know mail of any kind will be appreciated but these are sure to be winners since Mom made 'em! :) It's the little things that they remember!
