As a part of the Operation Write Home Top Cards of 2014 blog hop, here are my top 14 favorite cards for 2014. Not all were OWH cards, but most are OWH-friendly. I’ve noted below if I think a card is not OWH appropriate, and why —
Because of the die size, this is an A-7 card, so it is a little too big for OWH.
St. Nick’s beard is flocked. It would be better to do the card without flocking for OWH.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope that you have a very happy 2015 — but for now, Hop on . . . (here’s the link back http://operationwritehome.org/top-14-of-2014-bloghop/
Here’s my latest post for Cut @ Home — a Happy New Year card.
I just love the accordion dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs, and the versatility that they offer. This card features the Katie Label Accordion die set and the Katie Stars Frame Edges die set. It was so very easy to assemble this card with four panels (of course you can use as many as you want). You can find the full details —
I hope you have a very happy 2015!
This is a busy holiday week! Hanukkah ends tomorrow evening (12/24), and the celebration of Christmas begins. Kwanzaa begins on Friday (12/26), and ends on January 1. However you celebrate, I hope that you have a joyous time with family and friends.
As always, more details are available on my Cut @ Home blog post —

Here is another Christmas card I designed using a Penny Black die, “Joyous”. I love the simplicity of this die, and how easy it is to make a holiday themed card (either Christmas or birthday, etc.)
This card is perfect for a product called Prills. Prills by U.S. Artquest are little round balls of fun — beads with no hole. My favorite use for Prills is as a flower center, but there are many other uses as well. In the video on my full Cut @ Home blog post you can see how they might be used to decorate cupcakes or ice cream cones, or how you might use them to create a snow scene.
