Cards for Heroes Blog Hop

This is a card I made during the LNS shoe box swap. It was designed by Chris Occhipinti. I love the colors, and I thought this card would be perfect for one our heroes in Iraq or Afghanistan. For those of you who don't know, I am not only an AF wife, but I am also a contractor working with the Army Substance Abuse Program. Needless to say, military members are near and dear to my heart. If you would like to send a Holiday card to one of our soldiers, you just need to get it to Cards for Heroes no later than November 1st. What a wonderful way to start your holiday season. If you would like to see more holiday cards, you can follow this blog hop from the beginning by clicking here.

Ok now onto the card.
This card utilizes one of SU!'s embossing folders, finial press. All you have to do is place the paper inside the folder and run it through the big shot machine. I love the sharp definition these folders give the paper.
I hope you enjoyed the post. To follow along on the hop make sure you check out Karen M's blog. She has a gorgeous poinsettia card to get your holiday creativity flowing. Thanks for stopping by!
