Hi Pebbles Friends!
Amanda here, and today I am sharing something that’s a little close to my heart; raising cancer awareness & spreading hope. These days cancer is all too well known, with most of us being affected either with the disease, or having a friend or family member suffering. It is a thing of great despair & darkness.
So let’s bring some light to those who need it most, by creating cards of Hope!
Infact, why not host a little ‘Coffee, Cake & Create’ card making session to raise money for cancer awareness? Together we can all make a difference!
Here are my cards of hope with the beautiful Along The Way collection…..
Aren’t they beautiful?!
Here’s how to recreate them……
Start by trimming pattern paper Blooms into two sections, 10″ x 7″ and 10″ x 5″. Score down the center, and fold to create 2 card bases, as shown above. One card is a larger 5″ x 7″ size, and the other is cute 5″ square card.
Next, trim the reverse side of pattern paper Window Box to 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and adhere to the card fronts. Cut a 4 1/2″ x 3″ strip of pattern paper Bird Seed and attach to the Window Box base of the larger card. Glue doilies to the card centers.
Select a tag or two from the Along The Way Tags pk, and embellish with a Phrase Sticker or Ephemera sentiment.
To add dimension and interest, build up your card layers with foam mounted ephemera.
Add a few stickers, & a lil more ephemera!
Use the pretty laurel leaves from the Kacie Thickers to add another texture, & element of interest.
Apply a sentiment at the card base with the gorgeous gold foil Anne Thickers.
For finishing touches add a coordinating bow, and some sequins. Simple, but oh so elegant!
Cards of Hope only take a few minutes to create, but their thoughtfulness will last for months. Let’s spread the hope, and support our community! I hope my cards have inspired you to get creating and maybe even raise a little money towards cancer awareness too!
The Along The Way collection is really beautiful, and just perfect for all those special projects.
Thanks so much for visiting,
