Cards for Troops

I was asked to design some cards for a package for the troops that we are putting together at work as a part of our Combined Federal Campaign drive this year.

Many of the folks I work with don't normally do this sort of thing, so I wanted to make it pretty simple, and the project needed to be relatively low cost as well.

I designed the five cards you see above, using two sets of stamps: Holiday Cheer ($9.95) and A Holiday ($6.95). The great thing about these sets is that they both include shapes that can be cut with the Cricut AP cartridge, which is a huge time saver!

I've pre-stamped several of the shapes, so if people don't want to do a lot of stamping, they can just assemble -- the cards with the holly leaves. If they are more adventuresome, they can put the card together from start to finish, and if they're interested, they can design their own card.

CTMH Supplies Used:
Stamps: Holiday Cheer
Ink: Cranberry, Topiary, Desert Sand, Chocolate
Paper: Cranberry, Topiary, Chocolate


  1. so sweet...I know they will love them...

  2. OH! This is such a blessing--I know the troops will LOVE these cards! I always want to make cards for them and forget--that's my goal for next year....give ALL of my cards away to troops (well, the ones that don't make it in the magazines/etc.)! Such an inspiration! THANK YOU:)
