Today I am going to share a card with you that I made for the ODBD May Challenge for Operation Write Home. The Challenge is to make a card with Embossing on it! Every month Our Daily Bread Designs hosts a challenge for Operations Write Home. If they get 50 or more cards linked up to the challenge by the end of that month, they will sponsor the shipping of two boxes of cards for our deployed heroes. Thanks to Our Daily Bread Designs for providing a fun way to help get cards mailed to our troops so they can stay in touch with their loved ones back home! So in honor of Memorial Day I made a red, white and blue card!
I used a Darice Small Stars Embossing Folder and a piece of Red Core'dinations paper and ran it thru my Vagabond and then sanded it with my sandpaper block and then I distressed the edges with my Zutter Distress-It-All and then attached it to a piece of white card stock. Then I took my Unity Stamp "Ragged Ol' Flag heart stamp and stamped it with Denim Blue Distress Ink onto white paper and then I took my CM Antique scissors and cut out the heart and then inked the edges with the same ink and attached it to the card. Next I cut out the Serendipity Stamps Thanks die with blue paper and added that to the card. I really like the way this card turned out and I am not sure if I am going to use as an Any Hero card or send it in for a Hero to send home.
Well I hope I have inspired you on this Memorial Day to create something Patriotic and send it in to OWH before the August 1st deadline! Don't forget to check out all the other great cards that were made for the ODBD May Challenge here.
Thank you to all our past and present HEROES and their families for the service they give to our country and to keep us Free!!
Happy Memorial Day!!
Thanks for stopping by!
