Miss You Like Crazy


This is a really simply card I mass produced for Operation Write Home!  I have a box of 180 other cards waiting to be mailed off but still have room for another 50 cards to fill the box and just can't seem to find the time to get them done!  On November 13th Operation Write Home is having a Be My Valentine Blog Hop in honor of Veteran's Day and my goal is to make enough cards by then to fill the box and finally send it on it's way!!!

Today's card base is Chocolate Chip layered with a slightly smaller piece of Kiwi Kiss.  I rounded the corners on the Kiwi Kiss then added a piece of Whisper White finished on both sides with the Eyelet Border Punch.  The patterned paper is Fennel from the SEI Dill Blossom Collection. 

The image was stamped in Kiwi Kiss on Whisper White cardstock and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip.  I rounded the corners of the image and layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock before attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  To finish off the card I added two brown felt flowers embellished with medium white brads.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
