Operation Write Home Mid-Week Throwdown

I know, it is not mid-week any more.  I am a bit behind!  The challenge this week was for Any Hero cards.  These are sent to our military heroes that need some extra encouragement. 

The Americana Cardstock paper pack by Canvas Basics was just perfect for this challenge. 

I started to CASE a card from Trinity Designs.  The kraft layer is dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The tag is cut from a Spellbinders die, button and cord from my stash.  However, when I finished, I didn't like the blank space at the bottom, so I filled it in with three layers from a border punch. 

I couldn't justify a whole paper pack for one card :), so I made this one also:

Stars were cut with a Spellbinders die, and embellished with buttons from my stash.  I stitched the stars and buttons to the blue polka dot paper, and secured with a dot of glossy accents.  The kraft paper base is too dark to write messages on, so I lined it and stamped a few tiny stars on the corner::

  1. I think you're right on time for Any Hero cards, the challenge is still open and that kind of card is ALWAYS a hit in the shipping boxes :) Great job!

    Thanks for playing in our Operation Write Home Any Hero Midweek Throwdown challenge this week!
