Caring Hearts Card Drive

I'm happy to participate in the Caring Hearts Card Drive this year.  There's still plenty of time to join in on the fun!  I made each of the cards below with a tag as the focal point.  I made 20 cards, 3-5 tags of each of the designs and added them to a simple dry embossed snowflake background.  Each of the cards has a message stamped inside.  I kept the inside message simple and bold so it would be easy to read.

The three designs above were cut using the Silhouette and embellished with some of my favorite Christmas images (supplies listed below).  The top two are shaker tags.

The two tags above feature PTI stamps and dies.
This little guy is a retired image from LOTV called Puppy Post.

The Caring Hearts Card Drive is a great way to reach out to our lonely elders living in nursing homes.  I hope to make more cards for this fantastic cause.  Click on the link to get all the details.

  2. Every one of these is FABULOUS Kara! I love how you used the same embossed background for each card and then added the simple tags for the focal points...definitely a great way to make more than one of something! These will definitely be appreciated by the elderly this year and bring lots of smiles to their faces! :0)
