OWH Sketch #81

Here's my attempt at Sketch #81 for Operation Write Home, using one of Inspired Stamps cute "His Little Ones" clear stamps. The Spellbinder label die I cut from camo paper doesn't pop enough against the dark green embossed background. It's better in person, but I should have inked the edges or matted it.
I made another one with a "His Little Ones" stamp, using a tip that I saw on the OWH facebook page. That is, lining cards with those little notepaids you get from charity groups. I thought that was a great idea so I tried it. I really like this double-sided patriotic DP, so I made the front of the card narrower and added a border punch to show the inside. I had to trim & place the card liner pieces accordingly. Here are photos of the outside and inside of this card:

Thanks for visiting!

Your edge treatment on the second card inspired me to do something similar on a card I made tonight. Thanks!
