OWH's President's Day Virtual Cardmaking Party!


It's OWH's annual Virtual Cardmaking Party.  (If you just stumbled upon this and want to join in the fun, go HERE.)  Aren't you just having a blast making all these cards?  I love how all these challenges stretch my creativity and force me out of my comfort zone a bit.  Hopefully this next challenge will make you stretch a bit more.  My challenge for you is:

Glitz and Glam Without Glitter

Make a glamorous card that is glitter-safe for our heroes.  Remember, glitter cards can ruin a soldier's camouflage  and we want our heroes to be safe, so NO glitter.  You can use all sorts of other embellishments to get a glitter effect that is still hero safe.  Here's some inspiration for you:

Supplies Used:  Paper-Jillian Bean, Rhinestones-American Crafts, Stamps-The Alley Way Stamps "Awesome Blossom"

Hope that gives you some ideas.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  4. This won't be a problem at all. I got rid of all my glitter a long time ago so I wouldn't be using it on cards and get some on OWH cards.

  8. This is a great challenge for OWH cards. I've never been a big fan of glitter but I am always of the lookout for metallic, shiny elements I can use safely for OWH cards and have a little stash of stuff to dig into when I want some glitz. Thanks for hosting on today's VCMP!

  12. I'm away from my craft area this weekend, but am checking in on the VCMP participants and getting such good ideas. I love the papers you used!!! The stamp is cute and versatile. The rhinestones look like little eyes to me, reminding me that my flowers will be blooming soon and are calling out to me for some attention. No glitter is no sacrifice for me. It gets everywhere and I rarely use it. Your card is going into my CASE-It file. It's adorable.
