Card Drive Cards

 Hi all!
Today I thought I'd show you some more of the
Christmas cards I made for the
Caring Hearts Card Drive.
You can find all the information about this
wonderful drive on 
All the cards from this drive are sent to 
residents of nursing homes and senior care facilities.
I made several of the same cards.
Once the stamps are set up in my
MISTI stamping tool, it is simple 
to make several at one time.
I was inspired by Julia Altermann
to make this card.
I set up the stamps on my MISTI,
then removed the star stamp.
I stamped all the sentiments with 
I then re-positioned the star stamp,
removed the other stamps and
stamped the stars with 
and heat embossed them with 
I glued a few small star sequins
around  for a little more sparkle and
tied "bakers twine"
that I made, around the panel and
tied a bow to finish it off.  
See how I made it on 
I accidentally got some black ink smudges
on this panel, but went with my motto
"There are no mistakes in crafting,
only opportunities to be more creative"
and I cut the panel down, adhered it to the
card front and added a bow at the top.
It's a little different than the others, but just
as nice, don't ya think?

Thanks for stopping in.
I hope you've been inspired in some way
and I hope you'll join in the
Caring Hearts Card Drive
and help bring smiles to the faces
of some of our seniors.

Until next time,
have some fun crafting!
