Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge
Pure laziness on my part for not posting more last week - I actually had things to post - I will try to be better.
Today I checked out the sketch on Operation Write Home card blog Stars and Stamps and they have such a lovely simple sketch with beautiful samples. I wanted to try it immediately - Hero Arts also has a month long challenge for holiday cards - so I found a Hero Arts sentiment to go with the sketch - it was laying on my table - and was perfect. The paper was also still out - I used this paper for my Oldie Moldie cards - come back tomorrow to see them.
The sketch used two different patterned papers but I used the same patterned paper and just cut as one sheet. Backed it with red to make it pop. I stamped the sentiment and embossed in white and backed it in red also. I could not locate my white ink pad but I had a metallic white paint dauber on the table so I tried that - it is great - it adds just a little sheen to the edge of the papers.
Very simple but effective - going to make 5 more of these for my box for Operation Write Home this week - everyone have a wonderful day - hopefully it is creative for you.
