Happy Holiday Card 4 Kids Challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids

It's the 1st Saturday of the month and that means it is time for another challenge at the Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge Blog.  The theme for this challenge is Happy Holiday Card 4 Kids or Anything Goes 4 Kids.  This challenge no longer has sponsors so you will be participating for pride not prize.

Send a Smile 4 Kids charity is dedicated to collecting and distributing handmade cards to children who are inpatient at Children's Hospitals.  Please send us your handmade kids' cards for holidays, birthdays, and everyday cheer.  Help us put a smile on our kids' faces.

Holiday Cards 4 Kids Card Recipe

I used a technique I recently learned at a crop at Lake Barkley in Kentucky.  A friend of mine, Rita, always has the coolest techniques in her classes.  In this technique I used glue from Tonic Studio and covered my rubber stamp in the glue.  I stamped the snowflakes from Hero Arts on the black card stock.  Once the glue was no longer white, I sprinkled Tonic Silver Gilding Flakes and used a sponge in a circular motion to 'rub' in the flakes.  I die cut the be jolly sentiment from Stamploration in a glittery red card stock.  I cut out multiple layers of the sentiment to give it some dimension.  I added some bling with clear rhinestones and that is my card.

 Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Consider entering our challenge and donating your hand made cards to our great charity.

Here are some affiliate links to the products I used.  It doesn't cost you a thing, but I get a small commission which helps me purchase my crafting supplies.  


Have a great day, eat some chocolate and be kind to everyone.
