This was an easy card. It is made with the hostess set, Keep Calm. One of the sayings in the set is "Keep Calm and Carry On." That slogan has a history. But I have seen this slogan around a lot on different thing like mugs and t shirts. When Stampin' Up came out with this Hostess set (on page 203) in the new catalog
I thought it would be a fun set to have. Unfortunately, I had to wait because there was some legal issues over the slogan and the stamp was pulled from SU's inventory. It was finally cleared up and once again offered as a hostess item.
I found this video about how this slogan came to be. It is an interesting and charming video. If you look at the video you will see the poster with the slogan.
