As I was finishing up the challenges for the Operation Write Home Labor Day Virtual Card Making Party, it struck me that I hadn’t made any cards for it that could be used as AnyHero mail – a card in which I would write a message to one of our heroes stationed overseas, thanking them for their service to our country.  So I kept that in mind as I planned my card for the ninth (and last) challenge, which was to use the negative of a punch or a die cut shape on the card.  I decided that my star dies would work well for a patriotic design, and quickly came up with this very clean and simple card.  The red, white, and blue backgrounds are attached directly to the card base.  The main panel, from which the stars are cut, is attached to the card with dimensional adhesive.

And ta-da!  I’ve completed all of the VCMP challenges!  Now I just need to work on filling the rest of the box I’ve started, so that I can get my remaining fall and Christmas cards out to my shipper by the beginning of October.

Thanks for stopping by today!  All comments are welcome and appreciated.

Stamps: Year Round Sentiments (Hero Arts)
