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.

OWH - Christmas and a tip

I don't normally post twice back to back in a day but I had made this card and thought the new OWH card makers might like a tip.  It is on embellishment thickness. 

The sentiment is mounted on a chipboard piece which is ok to use although I found it rather thick so I thinned it by tearing off 1/2 of the thickness.  The visual of layers is still there but with much less bulk.  OWH cards can't be too thick as we don't want the Heroes to have to pay postage for bulky cards.  I hope that tip helps.
