|Operation Write Home ~ Stars and Stripes Blog|
Hi Everyone, welcome to the World Card Making Day blog hop...if you'd like to start at the beginning and see everyone's contributions than head over to the Operation Write Home ~ Stars and Stripes blog.
I just recently signed up to start making cards for troops. Such a great idea...I spent 9 years in the Navy and know what it's like being away from family and friends. Of course, for our troops nowadays there are alot of deployments and separations that are much harder!!
I used the following sketch for this Winter Themed blog hop...
and if you go to the OWH site you can find alot of different sketches!!
Stamp: Savvy Stamps
Distress Inks: Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough
Red embossing powder
Shimmer Sheetz by Elizabeth Craft Design
I embossed the shimmer sheetz with an embossing folder (Juli's Garden) and than used a sanding block to rub off some color from the embossed part. I found this technique on You Tube. Very fun and cool effect.
Thanks for all who stop by during this blog hop and I enjoy reading all comments ...so thanks ahead of time. Happy Holidays!!!
