Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Winter Fun

2012-10-14 20.00.41This week OWH challenged us to make Winter themed cards that are fun for our heroes to send home
to their family and friends! I made both of these cards using the Cricut Very Merry Tags cartridge.  I had a lot of fun using this cartridge and plan on making several other cards from the cuts on it.  I used a little liquid pearl to add a bit of pop to the snowflake and his eyes.  The second card is a try fold card. I used my cuddlebug snowflake folder for the background.  I made the button with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment on the first card is a Fiskars stamp.

I plan on making a few more of these to include in my box of cards to OWH.

Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge 144

Well we survived Hurricane Sandy. Lost power for a day and some tree damage
but we were lucky compared to others.
I made two cards for this challenge. One for a female and one for a male. I find
male cards hard to design. This sketch was a lot of fun. I plan on using
it again.
Please feel free to leave a comment. I love reading them and appreciate
your input. You can find the OWH post here

OWH Sketch Challenge #143 with Tonic Studios!

Operation Write Home along with Tonic Studios has challenged us to create a card for our Troops using sketch #143.

Here’s the sketch…

I decided to create a card with a winter theme. I used Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge for the snowflakes and the coordinating winter stamp for the sentiment.  I used cuddlebug snowflake embossing folder for the background.  I highlighted the embossed snowflakes with Tim Holtz embossing ink. I added liquid pearls to the snowflake to give it a little dimension and sparkle.  I embellished the bow with a crystal from Megan Elizabeth | Above Rubies Studio

I love the blue and white colors together. The card measures 4.25 by 5.50.

Comments are always welcome.
