4th of July VCMP

Welcome to the Operation Write Home 4th of July Weekend Virtual Card Making Party!

I hope you can join me and the other hostesses as we bring some card challenges for you to make and show. You have until next Sunday, July 13th to add your card. Check out the OWH Blog: Stars and Stamps for links to the other blogs.

I have a Thick & Thin Challenge for you.
Make a Thick AnyHero card with a message written inside by you and then a Thin version that a hero can write in and mail home.

AnyHero cards can be crazy thick since they are given to the heroes in the boxes!

AnyHero cards can also be any size or shape so I like to make top folding "hot dog" ones.

Thick only for AnyHero card
Thin for Hero to send home

The Thin card needs to be flat so it is easy for the Hero to send home.

What's a Party without a Giveaway???
Since you will be making two cards, I have two prizes!!
I have some Thick May Arts ribbon for one of  the InLinkz participants and some Thin May Arts ribbon for another of the InLinkz participants so you can replenish your supplies!

Add your cards by copying your url from your blog or photo sharing account.


  1. Terrific cards and perfect examples of thick and thin. I really like the colors you chose... nice and cheerful.

  2. Beautiful cards and great demonstration of thick and thin cards and how both can be so pretty. Like your color choices for any Hero cards. I always think red, white and blue but this reminds me I have to get out of "my box" and use other colors. Thanks for sharing

  4. Both examples are lovely and perfect examples of what to do for OWH. This one strained my brain a bit as I don't generally use embellishments. Then I realized I have cabinets of buttons.... :) (Previous comment deleted as it had a typo. No me gusta typos.)

  5. Hi, Annette.

    Loved this challenge! Thanks for hosting... and for the opportunity to win some blog candy. :)

  6. What a great challenge! I usually forget that AnyHero cards can be thick, so I think I'll have to give this one a go. Thanks for the inspiration, and the chance to win!

  7. CUTE cards :) and what a fun challenge!!

  8. Great challenge! I've got my cards ready, but link button is no longer visible. Is the challenge still open?

    1. Lisa, Challenge is Open until Sunday, July 13th.
