OWH Sunday Sketch

Each month over at Operation Write Home, Our Daily Bread offers to pay shipping on a box of cards for every 50 cards that link up to their challenge. I think that's fantastic, and I try to play when I can.

This month's theme is BROWN. I can do brown. I decided to use Kraft, which I declared to be brown, pulled out my Memory Box Valise 6x6 paper pack, and made this:

Since the papers had clocks, I used the Hero Arts All The Time stamp set to pull a coordinating sentiment. I didn't want to cover up the clocks, so I used a piece of vellum instead and embossed the sentiment on it. The vellum wraps around the back of the clock paper and is taped into place. I cut two narrow strips of the blue paper to put on the card front so the main piece didn't disappear into the Kraft base. For my last act I punched three clocks out of a scrap of the clock paper and stuck them to the blue strip.

I also followed today's OWH sketch:

which I flipped so as not to obliterate all the pretty time pieces on the paper. :)

I made another card, too, but I'll post it separately since I can only link up one card to Mr Linky from a post. I'll be back shortly!

Products used: Memory Box Valise 6x6 paper pack, vat of clear embossing powder, card-stock-weight vellum, 3/4" circle punch, and the following:


  1. That sentiment is perfect with that paper. Very pretty.

  2. Fun paper and I love how you made a card around its design. I agree that kraft is just a light brown. So.... that means I shouldn't have so many issues with it since I love brown. I shall have to ponder that. Over tea. Teequila, that is.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
