Making a Difference

My husband requested I make some cards he could give out at the office. They are doing a charity drive and the cards are for the top givers.

This is a government office so I went with a patriotic color scheme. Since the cards could go to either gender, I stayed away from frou-frou.

I did try 3 predominately red stars and I really liked having one white star – now if I just understood why! I think it just feels more dynamic and less predictable.

In addition, he wanted one card that was “more”. I have a hard time with more – especially if I don’t know the gender! I ended up adding a few touches and created this one:

I’m not sure anyone but a crafter would notice the “more” but at least it is different.

This is the inside of all the cards:

For the inside I used the Super Star border die, Seeing Stars die, and an image from Military Stars.

If you are interested, here is the card I did last year.

Thanks for taking a peek!
