Holiday Hugs

Hello Blogging Buddies,

Here is another Christmas card for the Caring Hearts Card Drive.


For this A2 card I started with a white card stock for the base and then added the red & white striped paper aftering inking the edges with green ink.  Next I took my Great Impressions Holiday Hugs stamp and stamped it with black ink onto white paper and colored it in with Copic markers.  Then I cut it out using the Lil' Inker Designs Square Stitched Mats, inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink and then added that to the card.  Next I cut out the Impression Obsession Fir Sprigs set in green paper and added them to the corners and then I placed a small red sparkly heart in the middle of the sprigs.  Aren't the Christmas Critters so cute??  I love them!

I will be sending this card along with the other Christmas card I will be making to Caring Hearts Card Drive.
This is the 6th year that Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire have been collecting handmade Christmas cards to give to those living in nursing homes.  Caring Hearts Card Drive is all about bringing uoy and holiday cheer to the elderly that are often quite lonely.  This card drive will be going on from October 2 to November 27, 2015.  All Christmas cards must be delivered before November 27th.

I hope I have inspired you to create a Christmas card or two for the Caring Hearts Card Drive to bring some joy to someone living in a nursing home.

Thanks for stopping by!
Lori
