So, as you can see I made a couple of cards for this blog hop.  They measure 4 1/4"  x 5 1/2" and fit in a standard size envelope.  I wish I could tell you where I got the paper for these cards.  The background or designer paper came from a paper pack that I bought at Hobby Lobby several months ago.  I apparently took the paper out of the original packaging and so I don't know who the manufacturer is.  The word "Peace" was cut using Gypsy cardstock and the people images were cut using Hollyhock cardstock.  I thought they coordinated with the designer paper pretty well.

I cut the word "Peace" using the Elmo & Friends Holiday Cricut cartridge.  You can find the image on page 59, D9, Phrase, < Abby5 >. I cut one at 1 1/4" and one at 1 1/2".

The people images were cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart.  You can find that image on page 58, C1, Icon, < a >.  They were cut at 2 1/2".

I have a friend who does Peace Patrol at her school so I think I will be making more of these and sending them to her.
