Patriotic Cards

One of the requests from our deployed troops to Operation Write Home was for patriotic cards that they can send home.  I recently purchased some paper for this purpose.  I bought this paper for the white stars on a blue background.  When I got home, I discover the starburst stipes on the back.  I cut the 12" x 12" paper into quarters to preserve the starburst design.  I used the center portion for my starburst card, then used the edges of paper for the stars.

I managed to get 4 of these cards from that paper, with lots left over.  I'll work on making cards from the rest of my scraps.


  1. Very nice CAS patriotic cards Velda and perfect for OWH since they could be for anything fro. Birthday to Thank you.

  2. great cards that I'm sure the Heroes will be glad to be able to use. Perfect use of that starburst!
