Peace on Earth Waterfall Card for CFH Mini Bloghop: August 15

Welcome to my blog! Thank you for stopping by. I am so glad to participate in this good cause again. I hope you get inspired by every blogger's creation.

I made a card for Card For Heroes Mini Bloghop: August 15. Please click the link to start this bloghop from the first blogger if you didn't. Thanks.

I like to make waterfall card. Once I made it, it became easy and it was so much fun. I used blue and pink colored card stock this time for a change. I think it turned out very well. Hope you like it, too.




On this Card For Heroes Mini Bloghop: August 15,I like to share:
1. my idea to "How to make more than one card". It is basically about to plan beforehand to use the leftovers after you punch out flowers or snow flakes. Instead of throwing them away, you can use them as a mat of the focal point. You can make five or more different cards by doing this way without wasting. I made an instruction for my cardmaking friends at work and saved it pdf file but I don't know how to add it on this post. Instead, let me show you these cards as examples.



And these are cards that my cardmaking friends at work made for Cards For Heroes. They made them based on the first card sample that I made. I am going to put a sentiment on each card before I send them to Cards For Heroes.



2. why I love crafting for our heroes. I wrote the following when I participated in Memorial Day Bloghop. The more I make cards for them the more I feel thankful for them. I am grateful for my life.

"I want to take this time to remember all of the brave men and women who have given their lives serving our country.

I remember that we used to write a comforting letter to soldiers who were fighting in the Vietnamese war when I was a middle school student in Korea. My uncle was one of them and he got injured during the war. I saw him suffering from the injury throughout his life. I didn't really know at that time but now I can tell that soldiers are heroes. I am grateful for my life and my work in America safely. Thanks to them for their service!

I am happy to participate in card making and sending cards to soldiers in the battle field through Cards for Heroes. I joined the Card Makers group and started making cards for Cards for Heroes since January. It has been exciting challenges when I had to make cards with the different theme each time. It gives me warm feeling when I visualize whom holds my cards in his or her hand and looks so happy."

3. There are deadline for cards to send such as the Nov 1 deadline for holiday cards for Cards For Heroes. Please visit and find more details at Cards For Heroes.

  8. I love the idea of planning out the punching so both parts can be used. I'm not usually that organized when I make cards, but I am going to give that some thought. Thanks!

  11. I love waterfall cards!!! I know they're a huge "surprise" for the recipient since they're not real common and I'd love to see a soldier's face when they figure out how to pull the tab! :)

  26. Great idea to use the outside of the punched image as well as the inside... one of the very first cards I made was like that! I punched out lots of flowers in rows and then used the strips to make a second card.
