Welcome to my stop along the Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop!
If you're new to OWH, they are an incredible organization that collects handmade, blank cards from cardmakers across the country and sends them to our troops overseas so they have something beautiful to write to their families in. Its my way of saying thank you to our troops and supporting them and the country. My grandfather served in the Navy in WWII, I have a few family members currently enlisted as well as some dear friends and even a few coworkers.
This years theme is to create "Thank You" cards using an OWH sketch.
Neither my Dad nor my Father-in-Law are into the typical things you think of for dad (ties, golf, football), but beer is pretty universal in our family. I decided to go with a simple layout and design.
I used Avery Elle "The Man" stamps for the image and sentiment, a few brads for embelishments and DCWV La Creme cardstock.
I wanted to create a more rustic card using a negative cut scrap piece from the card I made here. I distressed the edges of the negative cut then inked and distressed the sentiment. I used a cut of raffia ribbon that I've had forever. I used 3M dimensional adhesive to the negative cut and sentiment.
