OWH Cards with Critters Blog Skip!
Hello all! This is the last stop on the “skip” for OWH today, but if you haven’t visited it yet, please go to Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps to start from the beginning! Our cardmakers have a great bunch of critter cards to share!
Have you enjoyed the critter cards as much as I have? So fun, right? I hope you have some ideas now for your own cards and for using those critter images you might have!
I have two cards to share!
First is this “Missing You” card that features a cute beagle. When I saw this stamp from Rubber Hedgehog I had to buy it immediately – this pup looks very much like my own adorable beagle mix dog – Patch! I combined the beagle with some stamps from Hero Arts Right at Home, and a grass stamp from Stampin’ Up! Inspired by Nature to create this card:
For my next card I decided the critter should be this adorable bunny from Lawn Fawn’s My Silly Valentine stamp set. I paper pieced him and added some googly eyes! This card also uses an OWH sketch, #146.
I guess when I was making cards this week I was in the mood to fussy cut! And in the mood for orange tones, huh? What I love about cards featuring animals is that they are often appropriate for kids of all ages. I can see a parent sending either of these cards to a child back home, and I can also see them going to a grown-up! And they’re both good for any season.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little blog skip, and I can’t wait to see your creations! If you are inspired by any of these cards today to make a card of your own, please leave a link in comments! I would love to visit and see it! Thanks so much for joining us today!
