Card-y weekend

I've been getting a lot of pages done lately so I decided to dedicate my crafty time this weekend to cards for my Operation Write Home box. 

The first is based on a card that OWH posted to their Facebook page and I lifted. The original used a row of teeny punched butterflies, but since I don't really own punches I thought I'd lift it into a more masculine/gender neutral design. 

The arrows were cut from a variety of scraps using my Silhouette Cameo. The sentiment stamp is from Studio G. The embossing folder is from Lifestyle Crafts. Because I was putting the machine to use, I went ahead and made 6 just like this one.

The next group of cards is based on an Operation Write Home sketch challenge.  I love the idea of using vintage means of communication on cards for troops, yep, I'm a dork like that!
This one took a bit to get the Crackle Accents in focus, making the rest of the card out of focus. Boo.

The others based on the same sketch. All the bases are cut from the same paper, with the elements fussy cut from other papers in the same Graphic 45 pack.

That's 11 cards this weekend. Not bad. Not bad at all. Now to wait and see if Snowpocalypse 2 happens and how much crafty time I can work in during it. ;)


  1. Great cards...the first one has a little attitude! I like that. tfs!!!

  2. I'm not sure that I should wish for Snowpocalypse 2. However, if some good crafty time happens to produce a similar plethora of lovely cards, I honestly can't wait to see what happens! I particularly like the scraplifted design- that embossing folder is adorable! and the arrows!!

    Who can't go wrong making a card set with some Graphic 45 papers. Certainly not you. Yeah OWH, they are in for a treat.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
