I have a little something different to show you today, and I bet you've already peeked at the pics below and your first thought was 4th of July cards...Nope! My friend Nancy participates with an organization called Blankets Of Hope. Blankets Of Hope provides blankets to sick or wounded Soldiers/Veterans who are returning to the US. Each blanket has a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 cardstock tag attached to it that the blanket maker uses to write a note to the soldier. That's what I've made below--10 blanket cards!
I apologize a few of these pictures are blurry. Had I not already sent the cards in I would have retaken them, but they are in transit to Nancy for the assembly event later in January!
Each card was hand stamped with stamps from DRS Designs. The cards didn't have to be patriotic but what US soldier doesn't love red, white, and blue? I thought making them patriotic was appropriate and DRS Designs has some stamps that were perfect for the occasion. Here's a list of stamps that I used to create them:
These were a lot of fun to make and I loved the fact that I had to leave room for a handwritten message. It made me remember to keep them simple, and that made these quick and easy to create!
