Hug a Heart Card Drive ~ Box of Hearts

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today I have this Box of Hearts card for the Hug a Heart Card Drive.

You can read all about this card drive for children in the Cardiac Unit on Christina Hor's Blog

Here is my card:


Creative Memories Heart Punch
Assorted paper from my stash
Black ink
Picked Raspberry distress ink
Tea Dye distress ink

For this card I started with white card stock for the base of the card and then I added some dusty pink paper after inking the edges with Tea Dye distress ink.  I cut out the Neat & Tangled Box die with double sided paper, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and added that to the card.  I filled the box with hearts that I cut out using my Creative Memories Heart Punch and I also cut out the Die-Versions Whispers Heart Balloons die with assorted papers and attached that to the card.  I took some black ink and my Joy Clair Butterfly Kisses stamp set and used the "Hugs" stamp to stamp on one of the balloons.  I also inked the edges of the hearts with Picked Raspberry distress ink.

We will have a Hug a Heart Blog Hop on February 1st!!

So mark you calendars for February 1st to see some of the wonderful card that are being made for this cause by some awesome and talented Designers.

I do hope you will join me in making some cards and by sharing the message!  There is still plenty of time!  The cards have to make it to Christina by 2/14/17!
