Project Soldier Cards

Sending Cards to our Soldiers

Cards for A Cause
Today I was challenged by Scrapbook Hoarders Anonymous, to create cards for our soldiers.  What a great challenge right?  I was quick to sign up and very eager to get started!  The challenge was actually for Christmas Cards, and although I detoured from the beaten path as I often do, fear not...Christmas Cards I shall make! :) Alas, we create art from the heart from where our inspirations take us to and that's just what I did.  

I have felt lately VERY inspired by all of the rich fall color that surrounds us now here in Missouri and so that is what I ran with :)  I also wanted to get in on a Mojo Monday Challenge (which I am ashamed to say I had never done yet) so I went to them for a little more Inspiration and this Is what I came up with.
I used basic paper for my card base because I wanted specifically the overlapping look that I created here with the scalloped edge.  I used paper from the GRACE collection which is now retired but you can find similar paper on my website HERE

I tied my ribbon around the front of the card and placed over it Half of a dimensional element.  I love these things!  They are white chipboard and you can ink them up to your hearts desire!  Love it! And the final touch was some Sunflower stickers that I just happened to have.......they worked great here I think!

I want to make some cards for soldiers too!
No Problem!  We would love for everyone else to get involved in this fun project!  It boosts moral for our troops, and it's fun too!  Such a good Cause!  Getting involved is EASY and I am even offering a give away for this project!  For every soldier card that you make and post on my facebook page, you will get 1 entry into the Project Soldier Giveaway!  5 cards = 5 entries :) You get the point, right?  The drawing will be for a FREE awesome card making kit!  See the kit and all the details on my giveaway page!

How do I get involved?
Contact me if you want to get involved and I will send you the information on where to send your finished cards.  Then just start making cards!  But don't forget to photograph them and post them on the Little Scrap Corner facebook page so you can have a chance to win an AWESOME card kit!
