Happy World Card Making Day
Today is World Card Making Day! I am so excited to share a Christmas Card with you today as we go through Operation Write Home's blog hop. If you haven't heard of Operation Write Home it's an amazing program where card makers can send hand-made cards to soldiers who then use them to write home. The soldiers received hand-made cards for all occasions to use to send special messages to their loved ones who are left at home while the soldiers are deployed. What a wonderful program indeed!
For today's Christmas card I had a lot of fun using my Big Shot and my Cricut! I also used one of my favorite stamps sets by Gina K Designs, Heirloom Ornament Stamp set.
I stamped the image with Purely Pomegranate (Stampin' Up) ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. You can probably see the embossing a little better below.
It is a delicate card with all the swirls but I like it. The card base is cut out using Spellbinders Parisian Motifs. The white shiny snowflake is cut out using a Cricut cartridge called Winter Lace.
I added a little bling and a bow and it was done! This cute card is small enough that it could hang on a Christmas tree. I just might have to make one for each of my siblings this year! (but shhhh, it's a surprise! lol)
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate every visit and comment. Have fun visiting the rest of the participants in the hop!
