OWH VCMP - Christmas is for Kids

Scrapping With a Purpose is the hostess for the second Sunday stop on the Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party.  Her challenge?  Christmas is for Kids.  Make a card for a hero to send home to a child. 

Sandy posted the cutest folded tree on the OWH Facebook page a few weeks past.  The cardmaker had fringed the edges of the curves of the tree.  I loved the look, and knew I had to try it.  Sybrina's challenge gave me the perfect excuse.   I think the soft greens and pinks make this card qualify as a card for a child, don't you?

I used Heidi Grace paper for the tree, fringed the edges, and dotted with white and clear Glossy Accents, and silver Stickles.  I always layer Glossy Accents on top of any Stickles I use on OWH cards, to be double sure that no glitter is released.  I used the tree pattern from Inspired Treasures.  Star is from Favorite Findings.  On the inside, I stamped "May your holidays be bright with joy and happiness", from Stampabilities. 


  1. This is the cutest little tree, and I think it's perfect for a little child's Christmas card! NJ!

  2. This is an adorable card for a little one. Your tree is really cute. Love the fringed edges -- I'll have to give that a try. :) And, what a great idea to combine Stickles and Glossy Accents.

    Thanks so much for playing along with the Christmas is for Kids VCMP challenge! And, thanks for joining Scrapping with Purpose. Welcome!!!
