Caring Hearts Blog Hop

Today I am playing along with a fabulous online event.....So you may have come to me from Malika Kelly  ..... 

This is a fantastic event that gives cards to nursing homes.....you can find all the details HERE.....

You can hop your way through all kinds of inspiration and find the complete list of designers HERE....

We were all asked to create a holiday themed card.....here is mine :)))


I used Bella Blvd. 'Christmas Wishes' to create this fun card.  I made it a little bigger than a standard A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2") and decided to go with A6 (4 3/4 x 6 1/4")......

  • To get the accordion fold I cut my pp to 3 x 4" H, sanded the edges and scored it at every 1/4"
  • Then I folded it back and forth and let it open on it's own
  • I ran a few lines of quick dry liquid glue along the folds on the back and gently pressed it down to adhere to the base of my card


.....and then I added some designer tape ribbon folded along the bottom for a bit more dimension !!!


These companies have generously donated prizes for you to WIN.......Bella Blvd, Hero Arts. Lawn Fawn, Avocado Arts, May Arts and Two Peas In A Bucket ...... and Jennifer McGuire is offering 2 online classes too !!


Winners will be chosen randomly from comments left on each designers blog.....so, the more blogs you left comment on the better your chances to WIN :)))

You have the whole weekend to leave comments
