World Card Making Day – Operation Write Home BlogHop

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog today for World Card Making Day. I’m participating in Operation Write Home’s annual bloghop. Love OWH – such a great organization. When I’m making cards for myself I always try to make a second (or third or fourth) one to add to the box I’m sending off soon. The cards go to soldiers so that they can send a little homemade love back home.

The theme for this year’s BlogHop is “Thanks”, so I knew immediately that I’d use my “Another Thank You” photopolymer stamp set. It’s one of my current favorites! I had originally planned to use the large “Thank You” stamp from the set, but once I looked through the OWH templates, my heart was set on using Sketch #89 so I changed to one of the smaller stamps in the set. Of course, I had to modify the sketch some to make it “mine”.

Here’s the sketch:

And here’s what I came up with:

Thank You Card - Stampin' Up!

When I saw the stripes in the sketch, I knew I’d be using the Stylish Stripes Embossing folder to create the striped look. Using the Early Espresso Core’dinations paper and some light sanding gives it even more texture. I embossed the greeting for an added pop of shine.

I used the darker colors to give the card a more masculine feel, but couldn’t resist adding in the little heart.

Thanks again for visiting my site. Head off to enjoy more of the bloghop, but come back again soon!
