Fall Colors - Cards for Operation Write Home

I started with the fall colors paper from The Paper Studios 4 Seasons paper kit for my card that I'm sending to Operation Write Home.


I have three Thinking of you cards.

Two bird cards with no sentiment.

I have a total of 6 hedgehog cards. I had the devil of a time getting this die to cut through in all the places. It looks so cute but it's a real bear to cut through.  I also mess up my measurements so 5 of the cards have the bigger tan background of the hedgehog.


There are 4 of the you are simple the best. Two of them have brad and the other two is using up some scrap yarn and crewel yarn. The yellow crewel yarn is gone.


Finally there are 6 Thank You cards.


So I made 21 cards using up two sheets three separate pattern papers.  I did not keep track of how much cardstock I used. All of them are stamped on the back and tucked into their envelopes and are now in the box waiting for more to be added.

Thanks for stopping by.
