First Design for Caring Hearts Card Drive 2015

"Seasons Greetings"

I just wanted to quickly share my first 'official' card design for this year's Caring Hearts Card Drive.
I had cut out one of the "Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies" by Stampin' Up! from some Inkadinkado Masking Paper.  I put that on a piece of cardstock and using the Flitterglu and stamping foam from Indigoblu, I randomly 'inked up' through the mask and around it.  I then applied the "Winter Dawn" Mega Flakes and scrubbed off the excess.  I also applied the Flitterglu around the edges and dipped them into the Winter Dawn Mega Flakes to add that detail around the edges.

I cut out the ornament topper from the "Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies using some dark silver shimmer paper and added some of the new "Silver Metallic Thread" by Stampin' Up!  As a final touch, I stamped the sentiment from my JustRite "Christmas Mini Sentiments Set" using Versafine Onyx Black.

I'm rapt with how this came out!  I now want to get more colours of the Mega Flakes to give a different effect.  Also, next time I won't use the masking paper as it perished after one application of the Flitterglu.  Instead, I will try with Xpress It Masking Film instead.

Please get behind the Caring Hearts Card Drive 2015 - it is such a worthy, feel-good thing to do!

Please include #caringheartscarddrive to your social media updates about this event!  It would be awesome for 'kindness' to trend!
