Using Heidi Swapp stencils and distress inks to create a one layer cards

Posted on

Hi everyone! Here is a new video using Heidi Swapp stencils and distress inks to create two different card fronts.
The dimensions of the pre made card base are 4″ x 5 1/2″. This was a relatively easy card to create. I wanted to do a one layer card that would be easy to replicate because I want to start sending them to Operation Write Home. If you haven’t checked out their organization, please do. It is an organization that sends the blank cards to the soldiers and they can use them to write home to their loved ones. It’s a great way to show support for those serving overseas so that they can write their family back home. I had all intentions of supporting this organization, but never followed through. I think that this is going to be one of my new goals.
Along with that, I am also going to be doing a 30 day crafting challenge. I will be posting videos of my progress over the next couple of weeks. If there are any projects you want to see done, let me know!
Thanks for watching. Feel free to leave comments or questions and subscribe!
