Cards For Heros

I've seen on a couple of different blogs about Cards for Heros, I always think it sounds like such a great and easy way to support our troops but sadly I never get around to actually making and sending the cards...I am glad to have friends that are more motivated then me :) ! A friend decided to collect a bunch of cards and send them in and asked for any donations. She mentioned there was a need for holiday cards, so here was my contribution.
I wanted to make something that would be simple and easy to mass produce. I loved how this card sparkled...oops did I say sparkle....I forgot on my friends blog there was a mention not to use any glitter or rhinestones, or basically any form of holiday "bling" because it can mess with the heat vision goggles, and also make soldiers stand I modified the card and took away the Dazzling Diamond glitter, I liked the original better but I understand the here is my non-shiny version
I wish you could see the dimension a little better, the Baja Breeze cs is popped out with dimensionals kindof shadowboxing the snowflake. I used craft cs for my base and embossed my sentiment in Winter White ep. I absolutely LOVE this cute little snowflake punch...I see myself putting that little cutie to work on alot of Christmas cards and tags. Thanks for stopping by!
