Cards From the Heart Drive 2016


Now that the Christmas and New Year's holidays are behind us, it's time to move forward with the Cards From the Heart Drive for 2016. This is an organization that distributes valentines to kids in hospitals, and those who are battling life-threatening diseases. There are rules to follow in making your cards, so I have to omit those embellishments I usually add to my cards, and just stick with simple designs like this one.

The larger red heart and black arrow was die cut with Lil Inker Of the Heart dies, while the smaller white heart was a negative from a SSS Heart Wishes die. They're all layered on a SU! note tag punched white panel and embellished with some red & white twine. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and the background was done with a Cuttlebug Cross My Heart embossing folder.

I've donated to this card drive for a couple years which is why I make valentines all year long. You can get all the details HERE for donating your valentines.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Carol

Such a pretty card for anyone With your embossed heart background and the two hearts on the tag the recipient will be thrilled with knowing so many hearts are out there wishing them well on Valentines Day. Wishing you a very Happy New Year. Enjoy today and the rest of the upcoming week. Getting very cold here so I assume you have gotten it already.
