This week is a bit different at Sentimental Sundays. We are celebrating with Operation Write Home for their birthday bash.
Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to write home on. They’ve mailed approximately 500,000 cards so far—and are still going strong!
There are quite a few guidelines to follow while making these cards so if you decide to take part make sure you read through basic guidelines here. I had to actually research what is an A2 card (yeah, I know, I'm stupid) and it REALLY distressed me that I'm not allowed to use glitter on Christmas card!
I made quite a simple (trying to keep it fairly non-bulky) and (hopefully) unisex card using fun polar bear digi from Whimsy Stamps. I coloured him in Copics (there was actually quite a bit more colouring done than it shows on photo, lol) and perked him up a bit by covering the eye and nose with Glossy accents.
The papers are from Fancy Pants couple of years old Christmas collection, I toned those very strong colours down a bit by sponging with white ink. The sentiment is from Elzybells. I thought it was fitting. The main panel was also dry embossed with Papermania folder and then brushed with white ink.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy (2 weeks)- use christmas colors
Simon Says Stamp - halloween, thanksgiving or christmas cards
Thanks for looking and happy crafting
