Operation Write Home: Finishing Strong

finishingstrongbadgeOperation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. All cards need to be sent in by August 1st, so I’m helping to get the word out!

I was inspired by this Pretty Pink Posh sequin mix.

The theme for the Finishing Strong blog hop is appropriately “Red, White, and Blue.” Instead of going with a traditional navy blue, I chose to be a little different a use a more teal blue.

I made a simple shaker card with cardstock that coordinated with the sequins.  I used velum for the shaker window and embossed the sentiment on it.  IMG_2356wIMG_2331w

This card fits perfectly with the Operation Write Home “Love Cards” theme.IMG_2359wWhile you are making cards to send to Operation Write Home, please make sure to stick to their guidelines.  We want to ensure as many cards as possible get to our Heroes overseas.

Let’s help Operation Write Home get the word out to as many people as possible!  Like and share the posts in the blog hop, and get your cards in by August 1, 2015.  Let’s make the “Finishing Strong” campaign a success!

  1. Hi! I love your shaker card and the bubbly feel of your design! Great to see you at the Finishing Strong hop!


  2. I love all the circles and the shaker card. I want to try shakers but never have yet. I really like your color choices.


    1. Thank you so much!! If I remember correctly this was an exclusive sequin mix for Impress Cards & Crafts. I’ve been wanting to use it forever and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! 🙂
