5 Cards Using Embossing Powder, Watercolor Pens & Die – #7 Healing a Broken Heart 400+ Card Charity Project

Welcome back to Healing a Broken Heart – 400+ Card Charity Project.  This project in short, is or will be an ongoing charity project I have started for Heart Kids Hawkes Bay.

Latest Countdown – 35 Cards Done and 365 to go!

I really had been struggling with what sentiment to pop on a card to a family that has either just been diagnosed with a Heart Child or given birth with one. With a little help from the Scrapbook.com community I finally decided on “thinking of you” and blank cards would be the most appropriate.  I made five of these thinking of you cards, two blue and three pink.  I kept it simple by using one stamp with watercolor pens and the same stamp with embossing power.  I used Scrapbook.com double sided adhesive under the shiny paper and then die cut the sentiment.   Please leave me a comment and let me know if you prefer the blue or the pink?  Full list of products below.

If you would like to know more about this project, please start at the beginning.  I would love for you to join me on the journey by subscribing to my YouTube channel!
