Operation Christmas Cards

I've been involved in collecting Christmas cards for Operation Christmas Cards. They collect cards to be sent to the military. For more than 50% of the military, this will be the only mail they get this holiday season. I am happy to have collected 77 handmade cards. I thought I would share a few with you.
This is 4 of the 14 cute snowman cards made by the Life Skills class at the local elementary. These special needs kids are between 6 and 9 years old. They did an amazing job.

These 2 cute cards are simple in design. The penguins are hard plastic 3D stickers by Jolees
and the ornaments are stamped, then heat embossed. They are attached to pattern card stock
 by 3D dots for dimension. The white ribbon gives it a cohesive feel.
The top card has a simple stamped Christmas tree, a border punched bottom edge and a ribbon. The gingerbread man and candy cane are stamped, colored and fussy cut. The card is stamped with seasonal words prior to attaching the gingerbread man with 3D dots for dimension.


  1. Wow! 77 handmade cards! What a great project for those serving our country.

  2. Oh, love your cards! My favorites are the tree and gingerbread man cute!
