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.
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. \
Today I have two Snowmen cards to share with you! Who doesn't love Snowmen?
Here is my first card for today:
Gina Marie Designs Big & Little Pierced Chain Hexagon die
Snowflake paper from my stash
White card stock
Spun Sugar distressed ink
For this A2 card I started with white card stock, then I added the snowflake paper. I took a piece of watercolor paper, black ink and stamped the Serendipity Stamps Snowperson with Wreath stamp. I colored the image with Copic markers and then cut it out using the Gina Marie Designs Big & Little Pierced Chain Hexagon die, inked the edges with Spun Sugar distressed ink and glued it to the card. I took the Sunny Studio Snow Kissed sentiment and stamped it with black ink onto white paper, cut it out with the Gina Marie Designs Big & Little Pierced Chain Rectangle die, inked the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink and then attached it to the card.
Here is my second card:
White card stock
Tumbled Glass distress ink
For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card and I added a piece of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper after inking the edges with Tumbled Glass distress ink. I took some watercolor paper and stamped the Snowperson with black ink and then colored the image with Copic markers. I cut this out with the Gina Marie Designs Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, inked the edges with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then added that to the card. I took the sentiment from the WPlus9 Winter Pals stamp set and stamped that with black ink onto the top right hand corner.
Be sure to stop by on August 1st for the Cards for Little Hearts Blog Hop!! There are going to be 9 Designers and you won't want to miss all the wonderful creations!! PLUS there are going to be amazing prizes!!
