I made this card tonight and realized how much I missed my daughters in Korea deep down in my heart. I am sure this card will be sent by our heroes to their loved ones back home with the same feeling.
I am so grateful for being a part of Operation Write Home (OWH) family. I have learned a lot of cardmaking techniques and tips through OWH. When I was asked today where did I learn how to make such beautiful cards, I said that I've been making cards for the troops for five years and donating them through an organization that teaches how to make cards better and better.
OWH Design Bootcamp has been great resources that is instructed by Paula. What she presents every month makes me competent to make cards for OWH and also for others.
I made this card tonight and I am quite happy how it turned out.
What would you do with these papers? I mean the large images in a 12x12 designer series paper. You may have these ones once you bought a pack of designer series papers. I like to share what I did and how I made my cards out of them.
Depends on the image, of course, you will decide which direction to cut.
First I cut them sized 5 1/2"x12" and into the following sizes:
(2) of 5 1/2"x4 1/4" (this will cover your card base completely), and
(1) of 5 1/2"x 3 1/2"(which is the rest of cut) as shown in photos below.
Here is another designer series paper. (Note: For this paper, I cut (3) of 5 1/2"x4 1/4".)
Here is one more.
And these are my cards that I made out of the first designer series paper. I just added a sentiment and a butterly. What do you think?
