Cards for Little Hearts



Hello My Crafty Friends,


I am participating in the Card Drive for the children in the Heart Center at Nationwide Children's Hospital.  The Card Drive will run from July 1st to August 25th for Winter Themed cards to be distributed to the children in December.  No Merry Christmas, just Winter Wishes and Holiday Wishes.


I would love it if you would join me in making some cards for this wonderful cause!!


You can find out all the details about the Card Drive and the Important Guidelines for making the cards here


Here is a card I made for the Card Drive:



Ingredients:

CTMH Warm Winter Wishes stamp 
Assorted papers from my stash
Copic markers
Kraft card stock
Black ink
Tumbled Glass distress ink
Water color paper

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took the Whipper Snapper Designs "Hello Friends" stamp and stamped that with black ink onto some water color paper and colored it in with Copic markers.  I cut that paper down, inked the edges with black ink and attached that to some aqua paper.  Then I cut out the snowflake paper, inked the edges with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then added that to the card.  I placed the stamped image on the card on an angle and then I took the CTMY sentiment and stamped that with black ink on top of the card.  I am getting my cards ready and will share them with you as I make them.


Please spread the word about this Card Drive and the Blog Hop on August 1st and maybe even get creative too!  There are prizes to be won and there will be a Blog Hop on August 1st.


Please use hashtag #cardsforlittleheartscarddrive when sharing on social media!! .


I hope you are inspired to join in the card making!!


Thanks for stopping by!
