Cards for Hug a Heart Card Drive #3

Hi, everyone! Did you have a chance to join the Hug a Heart Card Drive Blog Hop yesterday? If not, you can see my post here. You have until February 8 to hop along! Today I'm sharing more heart-themed cards for the cause! 

Christina Hor is collecting handmade cards with a heart theme (non-Valentine’s Day) to distribute to children who are Heart Center patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The card drive runs from January 16 to February 14 and corresponds with Heart Month in February. I hope you will consider sharing your talents and make some cards to brighten a child's day! There are prizes too, so please check out all the details here. The deadline to receive your cards is February 14 so you still have time!

I have three cards to share!  I used clip art images and fussy-cut so I could pop them up on foam tape. See product list below each card.

  • Clip art:  Beccy's Place freebie (thank you!)
  • Clear stamp:  Lawn Fawn Chit Chat
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics Heart Border, Lawn Fawn Chit Chat
  • Embossing folder: Cuttlebug Cross my Heart

  • Clip artFree Pretty Things for You freebie (thank you)
  • Clear stamp:  Sentiment (Your Next Stamp Woodland Cuties) 
  • Background:  Mein Lila Park freebie colouring page (thank you)
  • Other:  Washi tape from my Dollarama stash

Here all three cards together:
