Keep Calm

I loved this stamp set and had to have it!  This card is a copy of the one created in the Stampin' Up Catalog.

It comes with other stamps too- like "Shop On" or "Cry A Little".  I learned about the Keep Calm and Carry on Phrase from a dear friend and it's very interesting.

I made the card with:

Basic Black Ink #126980
Whisper White Ink- no longer available
Basic Gray Card Stock #121044
Crumb Cake Card Stock #120953

Carry On Stamp Set #126647
3/4 inch circle punch # 119873
Bitty Banner Framelets #129267

Well Worn Designer Paper was available in the Clearance Rack!

Keep Calm and Carry On was a propaganda poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the aftermath of widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities. It had only limited distribution with no public display, and thus was little known. The poster was rediscovered in 2000, has been re-issued by a number of private companies, and has been used as the decorative theme for a range of products. It was believed there were only two known surviving examples of the poster outside government archives until a collection of 15 originals was brought in to the Antiques Roadshow in 2012 by the daughter of an ex-Royal Observer Corps member.
