OWH World Cardmaking Day Bloghop 2013

WCDstart

Welcome to my stop on the hop! This weekend we are celebrating World Card Making Day by sharing Thank You cards created especially for Operation Write Home (OWH). We’re making cards for the troops deployed overseas to send home to their friends and families. ¬†Handmade cards can be quite a morale booster for our deployed men and women, and Thank You cards tend to be in demand for our heroes to send home. ¬†If you’d like to learn more about OWH, click on the banner above or go to http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps. Now, for my card!

  • Stamps – Flourishes “Botanical Bookplates, Volume 2”
  • Patterned papers – Momenta “Botanicals” 6″ X 6″ paper pad
  • Die cut made from Spellbinders Nestabilities “Labels Twenty Two”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Copic Markers

My card is based on OWH Sketch #115, shown below. The stamped image and sentiment are both from a set from Flourishes. I colored the Lily of the Valley with Copic markers and cut it out in an interesting shape, then popped it up with dimensional adhesive. The Thank You sentiment comes from the same Flourishes clear stamp set. The colors of this card are neutrals–not very flashy so that the eye goes straight to the floral image. Thanks for your visit and enjoy the other cards in the OWH World Cardmaking Day Bloghop!
