Cards for the Card Drive #1

Hello all!
is near and dear to my heart.
I have been participating for a few years
and this will be the 3rd year that I have the honor of
delivering cards to 
Brothers of Mercy Nursing Home and Rehab Center
as well as Sacred Heart Adult Care Home,
where my Mom lives.
I posted some of the cards that I made in 
earlier posts and the next several posts will be the
rest of the cards I made.
I set a goal to make 100 cards this year and I ended up 
with over 100.
I made several different styles of cards, 
I really didn't want to make them all the same
and I also wanted to use supplies that I already had.
Here is the first "installment" of  
"Cards for the Card Drive"
For these cards I used silver embossing powder to
heat emboss the ornament and sentiments.
The background panel was embossed with a snowflake
embossing folder.  I then applied Ranger Alcohol Inks to color
the silver card stock.  I believe I used watermelon and cranberry.
For these two cards I embossed the silver card stock,
but didn't apply any alcohol inks.
I heat embossed the sentiment and snowflakes
with silver embossing powder.
I love how they all turned out.
I made several of each style
and I hope the recipients like them.

Thanks for stopping by, come again soon,
to see more of the cards I made for the 
card drive.
