Today for Monday Craft Madness we are wrapping up our card madness for Operation Write Home - see below for more details. Today's Steal Bo Bunny Alora collection was a quick and easy way to create seven cards in about 30 minutes. So today's theme is:
Use these card kits to make fun cards so quickly. Here's what I created:
I used the card kit that is available in today's steal. Everything is included in the kit, even the envelopes. Using the enclosed instruction sheet, I was really able to create all of these cards in about a half an hour. After I created the cards following the instructions I went back and chose the rub on sentiments for each card.
The die cut and chipboard embellishments in the kit are great for a little added dimension to your cards.
Use a little ink on your edges to add a little more variety.

Now for the details of participating with us in helping Operation Write Home. You can start sending cards to us at any time, to arrive no later than September 15.
Please read through and follow all of the Operation Write Home guidelines. All cards must be 4.25″ x 5.5″ - half a sheet of cardstock – with an included envelope and NO glitter. Please do not write your own messages in the card as these will be used by service men and women to write home to their loved ones. They are very grateful for these cards and they mean a lot, so let's use our best materials and really show them how much we appreciate their service! (Read the rest of the guidelines here.)
Mail the cards to us so they arrive no later than September 15, and we will organize and send them to our troops. Now not only have you done some therapeutic and fun crafting, you've given a service member and their family a treasured gift!
