Lasting Hearts Card Drive

Today I want to share some cards I created for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive. Lasting Hearts help mothers who have lost a child. The goal is to have doctors give a handmade card and book ("You're the Mothers of all Mothers" by Angela Miller) to parents who have just lost a child via miscarriage.

Having experienced two miscarriages during my infertility journey, this cause is so special to me and I wanted to participate. Actually, today marks the five year anniversary of when I had my first miscarriage. I thought of both of my sweet babies as I created these cards...
I used THIS stamp set that was a limited edition and sold out last September... but Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts have brought it back with 25% of it's sales going to this wonderful cause. How cool is that!? 

Here's a closer look at each card...





I kept the design the same for each card, but mixed up the colors. I used THIS die to frame in THIS vented heart die. I used patterned papers from THIS and THIS collection for the slits and embossed a coordinating greeting under the heart. I used the coordinating die from the Prayers set and stamped the word on top using a coordinating ink, using the same colors for THIS background. I finished off the card by using THIS on the heart for shine and adding a few enamel dots...


Making cards is not the only way you can contribute, Lasting Hearts collects donations HERE and every dollar is used towards buying books. So whether you're making cards, donating time, or buying the stamp set, I hope you can help with this amazing cause. Let's spread some kindness. Lots more information can be found on Jennifer McGuire's blog HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
