BBTB2: Cricut - Military Salute to my Son-in-Law

It's a Memorial Day salute to all military personnel over at Bitten by the Bug2 for our two week challenge.  There are some pretty cool creations by the design team that we are sharing today.  You can link up your Cricut made 'military' themed card or project HERE.  We choose a winner at the end of the two week challenge.

My son-in-law was a Marine for 4 years with two tours of duty to the middle east.  He is still in contact after 10+ years with his Marine buddies and has gone to visit many of them in the last few years.  I sometimes give him military related cards for his birthday which falls around Memorial Day or for Father's Day.  This one will be for his birthday this year.

The soldier is cut twice, once as a background shadow in a darker color.  I duplicated the tank, flipped it upside down and horizontal, and welded it at the top.  Cut the single tank again in white for the back inside of the card.
