Heroes

Hello Die-Versions Fans,

Lori here today and I am going to be sharing some cards with you that I made with the new Express Edges Hero die. This is another one of the dies from the March release where some of the purchase price goes to Operarion Write Home.  Here is my first card: 

 
For this A2 card I started with dark green cardstock for the base of the card and then I cut the Karen Foster "Hero Stripes" paper to 4 inches by 5 1/4 inches and added that to the base. Next I cut out the Express Edges Hero and the Whipsers Military Tags in silver paper and added that to the card.  For a finishing touch I added three silver triangle brads to the top left corner of the card.  Now all I have to do is write a letter to Any Hero and send it to OWH.  For my next card:
 

I started with a navy blue cardstock for the base of the card, then I cut out the Bo Bunny Anthem red paper and used the Express Edges Hero die to cut into the bottom of the red paper.  Next I cut out the Express Edges Hero in the Bo Bunny off-white paper from the same Anthem package and I inlaid the off-white paper to the bottom of the red paper.  Then to finish it off I cut out the Whispers Military Tags die in silver paper and added them to the card.  Another Any Hero card ready to be written.  My next card:
 
 
 
For this card I started with white cardstock for the base of the card and then I cut out the Express Edges Hero die in red, white and blue paper and layered them on top of the white base.  Next I cut out some red, white and blue stars and added them to the card, a nice patriotic card for Any Hero waiting to be written in!  And since I think all Moms are Heroes too, my next card is a card for a Hero to send home to his or her Mom for Mother's Day:  
 
 
For this card I started with a light blue cardstock for the base of the card.  I cut out a 4 inch by 5 1/4 inch piece of Bo Bunny Double Dot paper in pink and placed that on the base of the card.  Then I took some Bo Bunny green dot paper and cut that out with Whispers Heart Flower Frame and added that to the card.  Next I cut out the flower on the frame in Bo Bunny pink dot paper and placed that on the card.  Then I took my Express Edges Hero die and cut out blue woodgrain paper and added the Hero to the bottom of the card.  Next I cut out Mom and My in the same blue woodgrain paper using the Short Stop Font to match the Hero font and placed that inside the heart.  Now who doesn't think thier Mother is a Hero??
