Cards, Cards for the Troops, Challenges, Let's Make Cards

Red, White & Blue Ornaments

Hi Angels!

I have another great example for our July Holiday Extravaganza for the Troops.

This card was a bit fussy, meaning a few extra steps but I love how it came together. If I were making several of these for the Troops I would probably do either a batch of 6 or 12.

I always suggest when doing sets of cards for the Troops to keep the duplicates to a minimum because we are sending to one unit. Working in sets of 6, 12, 18, 24 work best to keep the variety fresh. I have received in the past a box of cards where the sweet person who sent used the same rather large stamped image on about 100 cards. They all started blending together even with different sentiments attached. It really helps a lot to have a mixed selection in the boxes we send to the troops. We want them to feel like a card “store” just arrived in a box with lots of different styles to choose from.

It was really fun digging through my patterned papers to see what fit our patriotic holiday theme. You can never go wrong with classic stripes, polka dots, plaids etc. I set aside a variety to work with for July.

This card features Memory Box Classic Ornament & Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallops dies. The greeting is from My Favorite Things Snow Globe Sentiments.

Have a Fabulous Week Ahead!

Thanks for popping by!
