Dash of Inspiration – Military Themed Greetings

January 23, 2012

A Dash of Inspiration, A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

Military Themed Greetings

Some of you may know that within the past couple of years there has been a camouflage copyright battle going on with the military claiming all rights to the use of camouflage patterns on clothes.  I asked about the camouflage-use policy at GCU a few months ago and the wise team of experts who investigate these issues informed me that as of this point in time, GCU will allow the use of camouflage patterns on cards.

For some reason that came to mind this morning when I saw this fantastic Can You See Me? Unbelievable Animal Camouflage Photography featured at Noupe and I had to share it!  This is a must enjoy link!

GCU has so many categories where a military-theme is appropriate and over the years I’ve sold many Military related cards. Look through the categories and you’ll find not only many holidays where these elements can help you create new greetings, but also keep in mind those military birthdays, retirements and sadly condolences. 

Here are some FREE Hi-Resolution downloads to get you going on military related cards:

Military – Veteran’s Day by Jayde at Net FX Studio




A couple notes on the subject before I go:

  • Remember when tagging your new cards you are allowed to use Marine, but NOT Marines.
  • Also I only provided goodies based on U.S. Military, but hopefully that is enough inspiration for you to search for other countries which interest you

    Hi Doreen,
    You managed to get me sidetracked again, but I’m so glad you did!
    Those animal camouflage photos are incredible.
    Thanks for the info & the link.
