Operation Christmas Card

 I used another new Serendipity Stamps image to create some cards to send to the soldiers through Operation Christmas Card. You can read more about this move to send cards to our men and women that are overseas during the holidays at Spotted Canary. I actually did three different designs that are the cards being taught in the free classes at Spotted Canary. One of them is this cool pop up card. There is also a challenge there to post the card you are making for Operation Christmas Card for the chance to win a prize.
 I love a quilted look, so I really like this Christmas tree stamp with the applique stitching around the edges. I added some buttons diecut (Memory Box) to carry the button theme to the other portions of the card and added some actual stitching. I do think I will pull out a star punch and punch some stars in the green around the tree.
 The card flattens down so it can be placed in an envelope. The base is made with one half a sheet of 8.5 by 11 inch cardstock,
I am making a dozen of these to send in for Operation Christmas Cards. Hopefully they will brighten someone's holiday season!
