Operation Write Home holiday deadlines are about 2 months in advance. For example, they need Valentine cards no later than December 31. Our Daily Bread Designs is challenging card makers to create love and Valentine cards even earlier!
Here is mine:
I embossed the white with a Sizzix texture plate, and layered it on a rich red card base (the card stock is red on one side, and white on the other, eliminating the need for a liner). Stash organza ribbon and bling, die cuts from Sizzix and Spellbinder, SU! sentiment, patterned papers from Bazzill. The largest red circle has a great pebble texture.
