Card Set 1

I bought three different sets of blank notecards and envelopes for $1 each a couple of years ago, never have used them. I decided to turn them into greeting cards to send to the troops through Operation Write Home. I will post each of the three sets over the next few days.

This particular set was a sort of "Baja Breeze" on slightly off white print. I added pieces of card stock stamped with various sayings, bits of ribbon and card stock scraps. All stamps, punches, etc are from Stampin' Up! (many are now retired) unless other wise noted.

  1. These are great! Isn't it amazing what we can make from scraps when we take the time! These cards will be greatly appreciated!

  2. Those are super! What a neat thing to send to the troops!
