Cards for Hug a Heart Card Drive

 
 



 
I made these sweet cards for a special cause for the Hug a Heart Card Drive!
 
Christina Hor is collecting handmade cards with a heart theme (non-Valentine’s Day) to distribute to children who are Heart Center patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The card drive runs from January 16 to February 14 and corresponds with Heart Month in February. I hope you will consider sharing your talents and make some cards to brighten a child's day! There are prizes too, so please check out all the details here. The deadline to receive your cards is February 14 so you still have time!
 
I made my background using bubble wrap to Darnell's NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff) this time including a suggested technique.  I put Distress Inks on the bubble wrap, misted with water and pressed onto my cardstock.  I did a couple pressings with a remisting to get a more subtle look on some of the cards. The stamp "Hello from the Heart" is a NBUS stamp from Hero Arts that I have had forever.  The panda is from  Unity Stamp Company. 
 
A few fun challenges:
