Hello - Military Card

My friend Jill, who makes 300 cards a month (can you EVEN imagine?????) for charities, mentioned that a group that ships cards to military posts needed tons of cards--hello, happy birthday, thinking of you, etc.

So, I don't even come close to making as many as Jill, but thought I could make a few to give her to send off to them.

I used patterned "telephone" paper with the sentiment, "Hello" from a Hero Arts collection I have; it is bordered and die cut with a SU Rose Wonder/Rose Garden Thinlits bundle. A simple ribbon knot finishes the card. These cards need to be fairly flat and CAS.

Cards are collected and sent to military posts where there is free "Hallmark" type card area where military personnel may pick a card to send home to a friend, family or sweetheart, or another military person. They need a lot of cards, especially masculine ones.

Note:  If you would like to send cards to one of these organizations, please leave a comment asking for contact information and I will gladly forward that to you.

Romans 10:9-10
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  NLT

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT


  1. This is a great card which I am sure will lift someone's day. Thank you for joining in the Anything Goes challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.

  2. You rock, Ginny. This card is fabulous and it for sure will make some lonely deployed soldier smile as he/she uses it to write home on. Thank you for all the cards you dropped off today - they are each and every one so perfectly made and will certainly bring joy to many, many hearts. Hugs, Jill

  3. A lovely card and a brilliant idea. I couldn't possibly make that amount of cards but I'd like to send some to a worthwhile charity if you could send details please. I could try loads of different styles!! Thank you, Jan

    1. Jan, my friend Jill said to give you her email address and she will fill you in on all the details. So glad you are willing to contribute to this worthy cause.

  4. Brilliant idea using the telephone paper. Thanks for joining us at CHNC Patterned Paper Challenge this month.

  5. So lovely of you to help your friend out with card making, I am sure the soldiers and their families will enjoy your cards! Thank you so much for playing along with us in the Inspired By A Song Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog this week :)

  6. Hi - Me again (Jill). I am not a wonder woman in making 300+ cards per month. I decided if I could make 10 cards a day, all these cards would add up. Since I make multiples of each card, that is really easy for me. Card making is my down time, my therapy. I design a card, make 10-20 of each card (I have 7 different groups I send cards to) and the end of the month I have quite the stash to send off.


Thank you for commenting on my card--your encouraging words have made my day! God's most extravagant blessings to you and all those whom you love. :o)
