Unity Stamps and Operation Write Home


I am a collector of stamps - ok - excuse me - I am a collector of anything related to card making and I have one fantastic collection of STUFF.  Who would have thought where that one little class so many years ago would lead.

I have been collecting Unity Stamps and I have decided I need to use one stamp a week on a card.  The week is almost done and I have not done anything yet.  Quickly tonight I decided to get one done.  I want to have 60 cards in my next Operation Write Home box and I am almost there.  Yes hard to believe it is time to make Valentine Cards - but really this is more of a love card that can be used anytime.

I have become quite the fan of putting a design on a paper and then dry embossing the paper.  It makes the design almost melt into the paper.  I wanted the heart to have a little more definition so I added the stitch lines around the outside of the heart.

Aren't you glad Friday is here and we survived a week of work and can now try to enjoy the week end.

This is an adorable card! Good luck on working your way up to 60 cards to fill the OWH box - what a great cause! :)
