I am here today with Miss Arts Papercrafting School to bring you a card that I created for Opperation Write Home! If you are not familiar with OWH, you can check out their website here. I see that right now there on a campain for Fathers Day Cards!!
Here's what Miss Arts has to say...
Do you enjoy making cards? Every Tuesday in April the teachers at Miss Art's Papercrafting School will be teaming up to bring you a card tutorial, designed to spark your creativity, teach you new techniques, and meet the specifications for Operation Write Home cards.
Each Tuesday, visit the Miss Art's blog to view the tutorial. Then join designers Karen Hanson, Alyssa McGrew, Tina McDonald, and Jodi Baune in creating cards to donate to Operation Write Home. Cards will be collected at the Miss Art's office, then forwarded as a group to the Operation Write Home distribution center. Every card we receive will become an entry to win the Esther's Innovations kit from Miss Art's, or a sticker pack from SRM Stickers!
You can send as many cards as you like, earning as many entries as you like, but only cards following the OWH guidelines will be eligible. Cards must be received by May 25th, 2012 to be eligible for the drawing. International entries and cards are welcome. Cards created should be shipped to:
Miss Art's Papercrafting School
Attn: Alyssa McGrew
125 Sherry Ln
Attica, IN 47918
For more information about the specific requirements for donated cards, please view the OWH requirements page.
I have created a card to share with you, along with full instructions on how to create it! I have used a gate-fold design and some Spellbinders die tempates. If you don't have any Spellbinders die's, don't fret! You can use any dies', or premade embellishments in their place. Of course I'm a bit partial to the Spellbinders dies... LOL!
Here is what you need!
Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® Machine
Spellbinders Die Templates
Helmar Zap Dots, 1/2 “ round
Metal embellishment (Dollar store)
ClearSnap ink, Black
Hot Glue Gun
Liquid Pearls “Ruby Red”
1. Cut black cardstock to 8 ½ x 5 ½.
2. Place on Score board and score at 2 1/8” and at 6 3/8”. Fold towards center.
Adhere paper to front folds of card as shown.
• 1 Persian Motifs die on white cardstock and one on red cardstock. Stencil thru die template using distress ink before removing. Lightly ink all edges.
• Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock. Cut and emboss using Labels Twenty Two die #1 (With #1 being the smallest). Stencil thru template with distress ink before removing.
Until Next Time,
