World Card Making Day; OWH
Today to help celebrate World Card Making Day, Operation Write Home is sponsoring a blog hop. OWH is a wonderful organization of dedicated cardmakers who make cards for our nations troops to send home to their loved ones. You can go here to join us!
In this hop, we were asked to make 'Thank You' cards, using sketches from OWH's extensive library. In addition, I tried something new to me called One Sheet Wonder I was impressed I got 12 cards out of 2 sheets of one sided DP. It would have been 16 cards, but as usual, I messed up on the triangular cuts. I will definitely be trying this technique again,to make any hero cards. Recipe & more below.

Thank you Seongsook for the cutting chart & tutorial.
White base - A2
Layer 1 - Recollections 'Jewel' cardstock
DP - Echo Park July 4th Pack, generously donated by Kelly-Anne of Scraputante.com to use for OWH cards
Spellbinders & Cuttlebug
Sentiment made in PSPX
Ribbon from stash
'Precious' used to pop focal point up
*I used the Spellbinders on the background layer for the scalloped cuts. The DP covers the hole, I save paper & no one notices the hole!
