ANZAC Day Feature CTMH Australasian Stamp Sets

April 25, 2014

Anzac Day has long been an important day in the calendar of both Australia and New Zealand as we remember the lives given for our freedom at Anzac Cove during World War I. Anzac Day, April 25 is a day of such significance in our history and culture, both our countries have national public holidays. The main event of the day is the formal Dawn ceremony and parade of Veterans, the sounding of the Last Post and the minute of silence ended with ‘Lest We Forget’ in services across the nation. 

As Australasian Close To My Heart consultants we wanted to showcase the Australasian Stamp Sets that Close To My Heart have made for us. The projects we share with you today are shared in the spirit of both gratitude and national pride.

If you have come from Lauren Moore’s blog – CTMH Craftings then you are in the right place.  If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

For this blog hop I have again made some more cards using the New Zealand stamp set that Close to My Heart made especially for us.  Here is the full set and the images and sentiments are great for other uses as well.

The kiwi is our national bird and holds a very special place in our ‘kiwi’ hearts.  The silver fern is also a national icon and is worn by all our national sportsmen and women when representing New Zealand.  The bottom card encapsulates both national icons.  The Timberline paper also reflects the rustic feel of our settler background.

Here they are:
