Card A Day Blog Post: Operation Write Home Any Hero Thank You Card

Here is my second of three entries I'm scheduled for, for the Card A Day Blog, this month. This weeks theme is " Thank You", and I chose to post a card I made for Operation Write Home, to be used as an Any Hero card.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5 x 4.25 inch white card base, and since I am using it for an Any Hero Card, I usually like to use red, white and blue, so I decided to use a red white and blue striped paper that I had on hand. I cut the striped paper, 5.25 x 4 inches, and adhered it to the front of my card base.

For my embellishment, I decided to combine three different Spellbinder die cuts from three different sets. The first was from the Pecot Edge Circles, I used the second largest, and with my Cuttlebug,  I cut that one out in red. My second layer, I chose The Lacey Circles set, and used the next to the smallest die, and cut that one out in white. For the third cut, I used a die from the Moroccan Motifs set, and I used the next to the smallest die, and cut it out in blue. I stacked my white cut on top of the red one using a pop dot, then added my blue die on top of the white, and added a blue rhinestone to the center, then adhered it to the left side of my card.

For my sentiment, I stamped the words " Thank You" from one of the stamp sets I have, then matted it in blue, and then in white, and attached it to the bottom right side of my card.

Thank you for taking a look at my card, I was really pleased with how it turned out, and plan to make more of them to send with my next OWH shipment. If you would like to let me know what you think of my card, please leave me a comment. I always love to hear what others think of what I've created.
