Cards for Kids: OWH Throwdown

Posted on

I make cards for my family and friends but, I also make cards to donate to Operation Write Home. OWH sends cards to military personnel who are deployed outside of the United States. The cards are free for the men and women of our Armed Forces and the cards provide a means for them to keep in touch with loved ones at home. Each week OWH hosts a “Midweek Throwdown” that challenges cardmakers to create cards following a certain theme. This weeks theme is Cards for Kids.

Most of the cards I make are for kids because, I have nearly two dozen nieces, nephews and grand nieces and grand nephews. For this card I tried to make something cute but, not too babyish since kids include teenagers too.  I used some of the cute characters from my Hero Arts: Woodland Creatures stamp set. And I created a photo booth strip look to feature 3 of the cutest critters.

Last week I was  archiving the photos of my cards and I noticed that I make A LOT of cards on white cardstock, with the focal feature in the dead center and mounted on plain colored paper. So I made a conscious effort to do something a little different this time.  Kinda cute!

I will be sharing this card with the Operation Write Home, Stars and Stamps Blog for their Midweek Throwdown.

Happy Stamping,

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!

  1. I love how you made a photostrip with the woodland animals. They really do look like they are posing for a camera:) And great idea to make a versatile card that could be sent to a kid of any age. – Mindy
