Caring Hearts Card Drive 2016

Today we are posting about the Caring Hearts Card Drive! This card drive is organized by Vera Yates & Jennifer McGuire with the goal to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing home. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be so awesome if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten.

Since this blog hop is all about holiday cards I wanted to share a fun Holiday card today using our Ornamental Newton stamp set. I used the image of the cute kitty, hugging a giant holiday ornament! This image is so fun to color - you can make the kitty and ornament any combination of colors to go with your card. For this card I used Zig Clean Color Markers and did a quick watercolor with bright tones of lime green, pink and yellow with orange for the kitty (our real life Newton is an orange kitty). Then I cut the image out using the coordinating Ornamental Newton Die Set and added a bit of lime green twine around the ornament top.

To create the card, I used a white cardstock base, added a panel of green and a strip of striped pink paper to go with the color of the ears on the kitty! Then I added a lime green doily and a strip of dark pink washi tape. I added the kitty on top with some dimensional adhesive. For the sentiment, I stamped the "Big Holiday Wishes, also from the our Ornamental Newton stamp set and cut it out with a circle die to add it to the card.
