Today is World Card Making Day – I am sure this is not a Hallmark holiday. I love being able to celebrate something I enjoy doing so much. Card making is my therapy – I love to be able to create. Through my love to create and buy lots of supplies, I started to make cards for Operation Write Home. Cards for Operation Write Home – bring smiles to so many faces. I love to make cards and my ability to bring a smile to people’s faces.
The card I am sharing today is for Operation Write Home. Christmas cards are in huge demand. Our Heroes want to stay in contact with their friends and family at this special time of the year. I am always looking for ways to make great cards in an easy manner. One thing I have found that helps make card making easier is to use gift cards. I stalk the sales racks looking for tags that would work on card fronts.
The main image on my card is a small gift card from the $1 bin at Michael’s. There were 12 little cards and envelopes in the package. I actually used the red envelopes as the mat for my gift card front. So the next time you are cruising the gift wrap aisle, look at those gift tags – hmmmmm – I could make a great card out of that. My card is a 4.25 square - the normal size for OWH cards is 4.25 x 5.5 - but my square card will fit inside the standard A2 envelope. I justed to change things up a little.
Oh by the way – I have candy. I bought some new paper this last week and I am sharing with three people. In order to qualify please leave your e mail address in your comment.
Come back and visit my blog this week. I have a few more cards made using gift tags.
