OWH World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop


I love making cards for Operation Write Home.  This fabulous organization helps me to combine something I love to do with the chance to help someone else.  Operation Write Home provides handmade cards to soldiers serving on the front lines.  Soldiers can then send the cards home to their loved ones.  How great is that?!  

Because of my crazy schedule, I decided to keep it simple for the blog hop.  I used the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut fun cards and shapes that made putting these cards together a snap.  


 No glitter allowed on OWH cards, so I used a few red gems to give it a little sparkle!

This card was literally one Cricut cut, glue and stamp the sentiment.  Quick and easy!

Nice work on both of these! The cricut cut out is so intricate it make a beautiful, clean & crisp card design and the use of the rhinestones to add some shine to the first card is such a great reminder that glitter is a non-no on OWH cards.
