I have two cards to share -- both for Operation Write Home. The first is a kiddie card for one of our troops to send home to a little one. The second is an Any Hero card, which is a note of appreciation for one of our troops.
Just Inchin' By to Say Hi
|Lin's inspiration card!|
The sentiment, which was created by playing with Microsoft Word's WordArt feature, was the decisive element in the design and construction of this card. The shape of the WordArt drove the wavy edges of the card. The color of the WordArt drove the color choices of the paper. I have to say I am thrilled with this little guy and hope it brings a huge smile to a little one's face.
Think I'm going to enter this card for the current Male Room Shades-of-Blue challenge. This is a new challenge blog for me -- and I'm hoping that a card for a little boy qualifies.
I'm also going to accept Karen's lovely invitation to join in the fun at the current Anything-Goes Word Art Wednesday challenge.
Finally, I'd like to make a pink and purple little girl version before I send out my next box of OWH cards! :)
Thank You, Hero
My second card is an Any Hero card that was inspired by OWH Sketch Challenge #247. Because I wanted to use a horizontal sentiment, I rotated the sketch. I guess it turned out okay. I felt like the sentiment oval needed something more -- just not sure if those black stars are what it needed. Regardless, I hope it conveys hubby's and my appreciation for a patriot's service.
Since this is an Any Hero card, it can be thicker than the cards our troops would be mailing home. So, the oval has one 3D-glue-dot layer of thickness, and the circle embellishment has two layers.
