Virtual Card Making Party with Operation Write Home
This week end Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making party. I was gone most of yesterday but did start a few cards last night for the challenges from yesterday. This card is for the challenge - All Creatures Great and Small - I have a box almost ready to be mailed but I did not have any masculine cards in the box so thought I would make a few to include. This fish paper (a fish is a creature) is from Hobby Lobby - and I like to use it for masculine cards. The burlap paper is from Hobby Lobby also. The sentiment is a favorite Hero Arts stamp - works well for a masculine card.
Luckily these cards were laying on my design table and I just had to finish adhering them together. These cards will go into two challenges. One challenge is for partial embossing - I did not have the time to do what the video showed but will try it soon so I decided just to emboss part of the card front and stamp below the embossing or I guess it was stamp and then emboss above the stamping.
The second challenge for these cards is things with wheels. This stamp is a favorite - no longer available from Cornish Heritage Farms - maybe the new company under this name will bring it back - it makes such a great masculine card with just plain stamping - no coloring needed. The square card is a 4.25 square - someone standing at my cutting table was not thinking as they trimmed that piece of kraft paper.
Well I need to get some healthy groceries - six of us in the office joined a weight loss team - so I guess I need to buy some more fruits and vegetables and lean meat. Working on plans for a trip to Florida and oh yes - must do some housework and probably laundry. YUCK on all that stuff - I would much rather play with my paper.
