Operation Write Home Blog Hop

I made these cards for Operation Write Home’s blog hop. We were to use a winter theme to make cards that our heroes could use to send home to their love ones.  The first one is made using  Close to My Heart winter sentiment and snowflakes from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I used liquid pearls to decorate the snowflakes and the ink was one of Megan’s little juicy stamp pads from Above Rubbies Studio.  I love the way the colors match. I added a little stickles to the bottom snowflake and popped up the sentiment and center snowflake to add demension.

The second card was made using the same cartridge and stamp set.  Only this time I used the OWH sketch 139 as my inspiration.  The pattern paper is from Recollections.  I used the liquid pearls again to add demension and sparkle and popped up the center snowflake.

I hope you are enjoying the card hop. Please consider joining us in making cards for our heroes. It is our way of saying thankyou and letting them know we care.  Feel free to leave a comment. I love reading them.
