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!

    You could do a repeated thank you in each square, or three the same, and one different. (Like you rock or You’re awesome or something like that.)

    Single words like dream, gratitude, thanks, love, etc. would work too.

    Super cute so far!

    Great card! My first instinct would be to add a die cut “thanks” over the center circle, but that’d put the card out of balance, so I think you should use a scrap of one of the lighter pieces of the squares, stamp a “Thank You” or “Thanks so much” and place it over the embossed strip. Happy WCMD!

    I like your color combo and the patterned paper squares alternated with the blank white. A small ‘thanks’ could be matted to the center circle, or a longer ‘Thanks so very much’ sentiment could be matted and adhered in that nicely blank spot at the bottom – I’m sure you probably have a little more scraps on your desk.

    The tiny squares limit what I can say…….I usually use the longer lower piece to place the sentiment, but no reason why we can’t place one word in each of the four squares: Thank You So Much
