Reindeer in the Snow

Hello Blogging Buddies,

Here is today's Christmas card for the Caring Heart Christmas Card Drive!


For this A2 card I started with a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Paper and I stamped the reindeer stamp from the Inkadinkado Christmas Silhouettes stamp set with Versamark and then heat embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle Copper  Embossing Powder, then I took Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass and Broken China distress inks and rubbed them on the paper and then spritzed it with water and let it dry.  Next I cut out the Joy Crafts Winter Wishes die with white paper and added that to the top of the card.  Then I cut out one of the Spellbinders Curved Borders Two in white paper and added that to the bottom of the card.  Next I took some white shimmer paper and the Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets Merry Christmas die and cut out Merry Christmas and added that to the card.  So what do you think?  Does this just make you long for some snowy days and nights?

I will be mailing this card to Caring Hearts Card Drive along with the other Christmas cards I have been making.
This is the 6th year that Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire   have been collecting handmade Christmas cards to give to those that live in nursing homes.  Caring Hearts Card Drive is all about bringing joy and holiday cheer to the elderly that are often quite lonely.  This card drive will be going on from October 3 to November 27, 2015.  All Christmas cards must be delivered before November 27th.

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