If you know Vera Yates, then you know what a sweetheart she is. I have had a chance to work with her every year since she started this fabulous card drive. And I am always one of the lucky recipients to bring a box of cards to our local Assisted Living and it's so amazing to see the smiles spread on those folk's face. So please consider making your cards for this great cause in mind...
Here is my weak attempt at a Shaped Card. I really wanted to try these dies out by Mama Elephant, and this is what resulted...
Stamps: (Simple Christmas) Neat & Tangled
Paper: (Heavy Card Stock - Speckled) Avery Elle; (Perfect Match Card Stock - Pure Poppy) Papetrey Ink
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Antique Linen) Ranger; (Shadow Ink - Field Greens Mid-tone, Forever Green Mid-tone, Red Royal Mid-tone) Hero Arts; (Creative Color - Hazelnut) Mama Elephant
Embellishments: (Glossy Accents) Ranger; (Christmas Words Dies) Paper Smooches; (Creative Cuts - Femme Frame) Mama Elephant
I made this card during a little crafty get-together, so I got try a bunch of different supplies out that I didn't have in my stash, including new inks, dies and a bunch of other fun products. It's a pretty CAS card and I love how the Neat & Tangled Simple Christmas has those fun little boughs, pine cones and berries to make a fun Christmas or harvest-themed creation. I love how they are appropriate for any audience.
That's all I have for you. Go see the other girls' creations. They will surely have many inspirations for you...
Here is the reader's digest version.
