Cards That Care Week - Day Five!

Hello, friends!  It is day five of my "Cards That Care Week" and I'm hoping that by now you have checked out this awesome card drive HERE.  I think this is such a great idea...even if you just send in one card!  There are prizes to be won, so go check it out!

Today I have two variations on the same card.  (I have made cards like this before...can't help but do it again!)  Using all Hero Arts stamps, I stamped the Large Canvas Stripes in cranberry red dye ink, then embossed the Wreath of Leaves using clear powder and  green pigment ink.  For the first card, I added red gems and a sticker sentiment from SRM Stickers.

For the second card, I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment from the clear design "Laughter and Merriment"set onto cream cardstock, trimmed, and added distress inks to the edges.  I used red pearls instead of sparkly gems on this wreath.

This wreath has so many possibilities!  It is a classic in my book...and so are the canvas stripes.

Tomorrow's card is possibly one you have seen was in my stash of cards from last winter but I included it in the bunch I sent for the current card drive. 

Until then,


  1. I agree with you! It's a wonderful, classic card!

  2. Love the wreath against that striped background Judy! These are beautiful!

  3. I really love this one Judy! The combo of canvas stripes and wreath are fantastic! I adore the weathered look you get :)
    All your cards were great this week :)

  4. The wreath looks so pretty against the stripes, Judy! Lovely card!

  5. Fabulous card Judy, the canvas stripes make a great vintage candy cane style background! Love this card :)
