Wild Card Wednesday

This month I have been making cards to send to Canadian troops overseas using the "Operation Write Home" stamp set that came in this month's card kit. I think this one is my favorite so far. I inked up the stencil with early espresso ink and then rubbed it directly onto the kraft cardstock. I wanted the card to have a distressed / well traveled look, so I shredded all the edges with scissors and crinkled up the leaves.

Remember, if you want to send a card overseas to show your support of our troops, here's the address again:

Thanks, Donna!
