Can you believe that its that time of year again! World Card Making Day is a great day and what better way to use up all those scraps of paper that you have lying around then to create cards that you can send off to the troops! I decided to create a card based on this sketch from Operation Write Home. You can find the post that goes along with this sketch here! If you are ever looking for more card inspiration you can check out the massive list of sketches that OWH offers here! There are some wonderful card sketches for you to choose from!

Apparently because I haven’t scrapped in quite some time I had quite a few scraps laying around on my table. So I found all the scraps and picked the colors that worked the best together and went to trimming away on my cutter pillar. I swear the cutter pillar is the best trimmer there is! Any who I came up with this lovely card but then could not figure out a sentiment to put on the card.

I used the Swiss Dots Embossing folder from Cuttlebug which is one of my favorite embossing folders and my wonderful Epiphany Crafts Shape Maker tool for the circle in the middle. I also adhered the squares with some Zots 3d dots to add some extra dimension. This card for me was all about texture and dimension and just fell right into place except for the sentiment part!

I send cards as much as possible to Operation Write Home so that our troops have something nice to send back home to their loved ones while they continue to fight for our country! Operation Write Home is a great way to give back to our troops and they really appreciate our cards!

So I challenge you to give me a sentiment for this card by following the theme of this blog hop which is Thank You. The card can be a Thank You card that I will send out to someone in the troops or the card can be a Thank You card for someone in the service to send to a loved one. Leave your suggestion in the comments and don’t forget to check out all the wonderful cards that have been made for World Card Making Day here!






Cute Digital Stamp Makes a Great Card

Here I am with my Party Time Tuesdays Challenge with a digital stamp from Digi Garden. The Digi Garden has fantastic stamps and they are all so cute! I wish I could buy them all. I kept it pretty simple for this card. I colored my stamp with some Sharpie and Bic Markers because I wanted to see how it would turn out. I was pleasantly surprised with how well my cute little stamp came out.

I wanted my stamp to be the focal point of the card so I created a standard A2 card (4¼x5½) and created a background by trimming purple card stock and cream card stock and layering them as the base of the card. I cut out my digital stamp and adhered her to the card. I then stamped my sentiment in the lower corner and left it alone.

My card was a simple no fuss card that didn’t take to long to create. I like creating clean and simple cards and layouts, as if you haven’t noticed :).

What I like about this card is that it is easy enough for me to create a few of them at one time and stamp different sentiments on it so that I can then ship them off to card care connection or operation write home.

Do you send any of your cards to a charity? Let me know in the comments I am always looking for other places that I could send cards to.
