Operation Write Home

I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

Design Bootcamp - Drawing a Blank

I had made this one for the bootcamp but "someone" ran off with my camera and I couldn't get it posted.  This class was discussing white as a design element and not having to cover the whole card with color or pattern.  Giving the eye a resting place as well.

Here are two attempts to use white on purpose in the design.  This second one was going for a simple masculine look.  The gold strips have a nice shimmer to help it make it have a more architectural feel.

Both of these designs are really nice Lynn. I love how you popped the bird and the CAS design on the second makes it a good masculine design. Glad you're enjoying the Bootcamp this year. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice cards. Lucky your camera found you at last.
