CKDT Blog Hop December - Feeling of Christmas

Hi Crafters!  

Today I'm hopping with the Creating Kindness Design Team & our theme is Because We Care / Charity. I have decided to make a bunch of Christmas cards for the residents at the local Aged Care community center - Drysdale Grove Aged Care.

This month's Guest Designer is Stesha Bloodhart! So glad you're hopping with us Stesha!
Stesha can be found at:

I have used the Feeling of Christmas stamp set with the Merry Music Designer Series Paper to make my cards. Here is a sample one:

I have used the two largest scalloped circle dies from the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out the sentiment & Copper Foil, & I have placed a piece of Emerald Envy Crinkle Ribbon between the two circles, attaching it at the back with Fast Fuse. 

I have stamped the wreath in Lemon Lime Twist & again in Emerald Envy. I have copper heat embossed the sentiment. I have coloured in the bow & berries in Light & Dark Rich Razzelberry Stampin' Blends & I have added the Berry Burst Glitter Dots where the ornaments are hanging on the wreath.

I have stamped the inside of the card in Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy & Berry Burst. All sentiments & images shown on this card are from the Feeling of Christmas stamp set.

I think this seems like a good time to share this certificate I received from the Breast Cancer Network Australia for my donation of a Be Merry Kit & some retired products to my friend Angela's fundraiser. I have donated to a few fundraisers before, but this is the first certificate of recognition that I have received.

I hope you have enjoyed my card & can hop through the group's posts & show some love along your way. I will be showing a pic of all the cards to go to the Aged Care Center soon. Next up, we have the wonderful Marcy Denning, you won't want to miss her blog! xx
