Hey guys! I’m sharing some of the cards that I made for the caring hearts card drive 2015. This card drive collects handmade holiday cards to send along to those living in nursing homes. You can read about it on Jennifer McGuire’s blog or on Vera Yate’s blog. I recently sent 30 cards, and I am going to be sharing some on my blog here today. (I will post links to supplies I used at the bottom of this post)
These 6 cards feature Lawn Fawn’s recent release. I used Toboggan together and Ready, Set, Snow. I did a lot of copic coloring, distress ink skies, and snow using the Simon Says Stamp falling snow stencil.
For the next 6 cards, I used Wplus9 Holiday Boughs stamp set, Hero Arts Family and Friends stamp set, and Essentials by Ellen Mondo Poinsettia by Julie Ebersole stamp set. I did more copic coloring and lots of gold embossing.
For the next 6 cards, I used Mama Elephant Merry Script creative cuts, Mama Elephant Charmed stamp set, Simon Says stamp & Clearly Besotted collaboration Holiday Banners stamp set, and Tim Holtz Holiday Knit layering stencil.
The last 4 cards I have feature Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin stamp, Lawn Fawn Winter Sparrows stamp set, Lawn Fawn Love you a Latte stamp set, and My Favorite Things Fall Florals stamp set. (I hand painted that red & black plaid background after seeing Kristina Werner’s card here.)
I hand wrote a holiday message inside each card, signed my name, and included my state with a gold sharpie marker.
Have you participated in this card drive? You still have time to get your cards in! You have until Nov 27 to send in your cards, whether you decide to send 1 or 50.
