Cards for Victoria


I just ran across Courtney's Blog requesting cards be sent to Victoria...a young teenage girl with cancer. Her teacher has put together a project to try to get cards from all over 50 states and internationally! Since we are in the business of MAKING cards, what a wonderful project to bring someone hope and joy and let her know we care about her and are sending lots of prayers to her for good health. Spread the news...anyone can participate...it doesn't have to be a handmade card. You can read all about it here!

Now, I happen to think teenage girl cards are tricky...to me it is just a mental block. I don't want something too "young" looking...nor something to "old" looking. I settled on this simple card with flowers...mainly because I thought she'd enjoy the GLITTER! The flowers are punched from different colors of Faux Diamond Dust. I make up 1/2 sheets at a time and keep them on standby...never know when you'll need a sparkly punch added to a card! The leaves are an old Stampin' Up! punch...I crimped the Certainly Celery paper before I punched it for a little added dimension.

I hope you'll participate by sending Victoria a card, too!

I think you made a great card for a teenage girl. Not too young, not too old looking. Glitter is ALWAYS good! LOL
Thanks so much in sending this out to Victoria. Hugs and smiles
