Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Bloghop

Here's the OWH sketch I followed for my card for the winter-themed bloghop...

My cards were inspired by some I found on a Lawn Fawn challenge. The cards are constructed similarly by making the bases 4" x 4.25" with the focal image overlapping the card, making the card the required 5.5" x 4.25", fitting an A2 sized envelope.

The papers used on my cards are old stock from my stash which includes Martha Stewart and Cosmos Cricket with a little American Crafts Neopolitan (Mason jars) tossed in for good measure!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and have fun hopping along! Please stop back to see me again sometime.

Peppermints were glazed with Glossy Accents.




All glitter elements were sealed with Glossy Accents.

Love the cards! I especially like how you used the Glossy Accents in two ways - first to glaze the peppermint candies to make them 3D and second to seal the glitter to make the cards safe for our heroes. TFS and Happy WCMD!
