Christmas Cards for OWH - Joy


I have a goal to create and donate 35 Christmas cards to Operation Write Home before the end of the month. This week I proudly will share with you the cards my 8-year-old daughter and I designed. I took this opportunity to teach my daughter how to design from the ground up and to ignite the spirit of giving. She chose most of the aspects and created the cards under my instruction. We had a blast!



This was her first time working with Recollections colored core cardstock and she loved sanding it to reveal the hidden pattern. I also taught her how to tie bows (a work in progress).

The silver cards bases and the green cardstock are from Recollections. The small red dots are by Fiskars and the ribbon is by American Crafts. The Joy stamp is by Hero Arts stamped with tuxedo black Memento ink. 


Please let us know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Awesome. No, it doesn't look like an 8 year old made these. Your daughter did a wonderful job. She gets it honest -) TFS
